I have these from about 20 years ago....no box, but they're in a plastic sandwich bag with my other 1:72 stuff from being a kid.

Obviously, you don't need *that* many artillerymen.
Judging by the excellent Revell SYW limbers in my collection (1 per box, sadly), I must have acquired 5 sets over the years and used them for both the French & the Austrian armies - my third SYW army, the Prussians, uses AWI artillerymen as their uniforms are sufficiently different.
So even if I somehow acquire a Russian SYW army (unlikely), I have enough to see all my needs.

Two books by Andrew Field - "PRELUDE TO WATERLOO Quatre Bras: The French Perspective" and "WELLINGTONS WATERLOO ALLIES". The former is an amazing book that gives unit-by-unit breakdowns of the various French manoeuvres on 16th June, which will assist in creating equally detailed forces for a series of Sharp Practice scenarios, whilst the latter examines the structure and key involvements of each of the non-British components of the Anglo-Allied Army, including their often-overlooked and sometime controversial - not least between themselves - participation in repulsing the final assault by La Garde and d'Erlon's Corps right at the death.

Both highly recommended, based on what I have read so far (which is pretty much all of both of them :) ).

Other than a bunch of books, which I have no shelf space for, took advantage of the Northstar specials to add a couple more 7YW regiments, and a WW2 Polish platoon for CoC.. with the caveat that Polish platoons were huge and I'm going to have to buy some more packs...

Other than that, STL files for Sumerians, a Bastle House and some BAOR Cold War from a Kickstarter.

Just ordered the bones of a Pyrrhic army from Aventine: three phalanxes, Companion Cavalry, Greek Light Cavalry, Pyrrhic General & staff on foot, Mounted Successor general, skirmishers with Javelins. With the elements I can borrow from my Carthaginians or Republican Romans that will almost do for an army in our Hail Caesar games. I'll add some Tarentines at a later date before Keith retires in September 2025.

Oh. Very nice... I've always been tempted by a classic phalanx army. So far I've resisted.

Very jelous. My velites are Aventine and they're very nice. If I had the money I'd invest in a load of stuff. I had thought they were winding down this year so that gives me hope. I have a Carthaginian army on my birthday wishlist for December so we'll see.

I'm sure you will be fine, Keith is not retiring until September 2025.

I've not painted anything since December due to blepharitis (swollen eyelids) and a subsequent lack of mojo, but I think the new AB Saxon Chevauxleger-Lancers and Eclaireurs are what I need to get the mojo going again. :)

Having sold my Prussian YW armies I used some of the funds to buy some Bicorne and Empress ECW cavalry
