As a side note as it relates to gaming groups/friends. Roy and I have both worked together to build out this collection. One of the great blessings I have living in Fremont is a great group of wargamers --- which is not only important for playing games - but because we all have an agreement that we provide and work together as a group to bring different periods and games to life. For small projects (for example, Muskets and Tomahawks) we do these individually, collecting both sides and terrain then hosting games for the group as a whole - but for much larger periods like Napoleonic's, we all chip in to get breadth and scale to the period in question. I've been lucky to have this type of setting throughout my wargaming life (even back in Halifax, Canada as my father's group was very similar).
Anyways ... figured since I had most of the collection out for the McPherson's Ridge game I might as well take some pictures of the whole lot.

I'd say it is just about done. At this point I think it is just minor small things remaining --- I want to add about 20 more casualties per side, finish the wagons, camp sets - all those cool odds and ends that Perry Miniatures sells. Maybe a couple of fluffier units like the Louisiana Fire Zouves. We'll see.
