|Is that thunder I hear?|
|No, it is the sound of destruction... the 9th regiment of Hussars is sent forward to point out trouble points and churches to loot|
|The infantry element...|
|Is shortly washing around us like an overwhelming flood of dark blue and grey.|
|One rgt of infantry, their grenadiers have formed into the brigade grenadier battalion in the background.|
|Half a battalion, rather beautiful figures, no fault of mine|
|Is that a Waterloo 1815 figure in there??? That is not supposed to be an eye patch, I missed it painting|
|The proud brigadier watching over his flock|
For Black Bob Crauford!
Here is the beginning of my next project I guess. The Peninsular has been my favorite part of the Napoleonic wars for most of my gaming history, ever since the candle was lit in me by the old Don Featherstone books I guess.
The battle of the Coa on the Spanish/ Portuguese border in 1810 involved the 95th, 52nd and 43rd light infantry rgts and 1st and 3rd Cacdores; the 1st Hussars and 16th LDs and Ross' battery of horse arty if I remember correctly. That is my goal.
|The 1/52nd light infantry.|
|and again. These are A Call to Arms and Hat figures.|
|I also have done the 43rd thus far|
|The entire 12th dragoons, humor me and pretend they have red facings :-/|
|The very old worn out Airfix Horse arty with an excellent ACTA gun.|
|How come I think of Elvis when I see this picture?|
