As I have mentioned elsewhere in this site, Napoleonics are my first love and I have more Napoleonic figures than for any other era. I was lured into trying Napoleonic gaming by Patrick Bauer ( a mate from school) after we finished a WW2 game one afternoon almost 25 years ago.......and have been hooked ever since.
 
I have always gamed this era using a set of house rules drawn up by Patrick's Dad, loosely based around the old Airfix rule set. Generally the rules were modified/updated after almost every game we played (or book we read).
 
My standard infantry "batallion" comprises 20 men and my cavalry "regiment"  comprises 9-12 riders. I can field 40-50 batallions for each of French, British, Russians, Austrians, and Prussians, together with their supporting arms.
 
Here's a few pics of recently acquired units, the beauty of which may help explain why this will always be my number one wargaming era:
