Since I saw some nice battle reports of Song of Drums and Shakos on the Song of Blades and Heroes discussion group, I was interested in trying that system. However, I would need to obtain a reasonable number of miniatures and painting all those uniforms, even if not worrying about being historically accurate, seemed to take a long while.
Then I came to know the works of art of Christopher Walker, of Walkerloo Toy Soldiers. He makes Napoleonic paper miniatures in 1:32 scale that are absolutely amazing. Each model is painted, digitized and scaled. The soldiers are very expressive and the uniforms are highly detailed. There are models for many British and French regiments of infantry, cavalry and artillery.
I ran a quick game where a group of French light infantry (one Officer, four Chasseurs and one Voltigeur from the profiles on the book) assault a farm occupied by British forces (one Officer and six Line Infantry Veterans.) Here are some pictures of the action. The first is a shot of the setup. The board is 90x90cm as fits the "Song of..." games in 28mm.
In this game, I also used the activation system described by Dogui to run both forces. In the future, I might mix this with the Mythic GM Emulator to decide the actions and reactions of the units.
As for Song of Drums and Shakos, I liked the feel of the game. There are lots of changes from Song of Blades and Heroes, making it a different experience. Leaders are even more important and ranged combat must be used wisely, given the slow-reloading weapons.
The Walkerloo figures worked very well, they are easy to distinguish and look good on the table. Normally I like paper figures with distinct front and back but these have shown me that mirrored backs may be better for wargaming: it's easier to pose them facing any direction while keeping their distinguishing features (like face and weapons) visible.
