28mm Napoleonic's for Grandeur Rules

Having been working on this project for some time, i can finely unveil the French army for my forthcoming peninsular war project.
The army is designed on the basic impetus system with between 10 to 12 bases/units with a separate command base, unlike basic and full impetus were the command/leaders are based within a unit.
The army represent a French force for 1804 to 1812, when the French armies were at there height. my intention is to put together a basic version of the Grandeur rules (nothing official ) and play a few games to See how things go. The French army.

French army 1804-1812
                                             M   VBU   I   VD   NOTES
3 veteran line infantry  (FP)     5     5/6    1    3      SK A VET
4             line infantry  (FP)     5     4/5    1    2      SK A
2                   hussars  (CL)    12    3/4    1    1      VET
1 artillery                                6      2      0    1      ART B
1 command

The army is made up of 10 bases/units plus command
1 of the veteran bases/units and up to 2 of the line units can be swapped for allied troops as can 1 of the light cavalry bases/units. these do not change the stat's for the bases/units
options for the cavalry are: 2 hussar bases/units, 2 chassaur bases/units or 1 lancer and 1 chassaur bases/units
I'm working on the British and allies lists, I'm thinking maybe an early and late Peninsular list and a 100 days campaign list.
Once i have them sorted i will start painting up some bases and start play testing the lists, things will bound to change once play testing begins.
