15mm Napoleonic for Shako II rules
« on: October 23, 2020, 09:03:34 PM »
Started this lot Sunday. Just need to varnish two units and done. Changed them around since the weekend. 5 Battalion of Hanoverians, 4 Battalions of KGL, 2 Guard Battalions (need to sort flags out), casualties and 2 guns (KGL & Dutch/ Belgian). Also got some trees from ebay (for Peninsula). Not my best work, used a speed painting technique



Hanoverians


KGL


Guards. I have just noticed I have missed the epaulettes off the officers!

If it isn't enjoyable, it isn't gaming!

Nice! Iíve got a ton of 15mm Anglo-Dutch minis that have been waiting to be painted for about 10 years, so this is inspiring me to get at them.

All for Shako II. Building 15mm French & Allied contingents at Waterloo continues. This weeks efforts so far!

Coldstream Guards


Dutch/ Belgian Cavalry, Rifles & Nassau Infantry (6 of the 8 units done that were at the battle)


1st Dutch Carabiners. Did not have enough figures, so improvised as it is believed some of the 1st were still wearing old issue bicornes


2nd Dutch Carabiners.


3rd Belgian Carabiners


Rifles


Line Infantry. Old Irregular French painted up as Nassau line


Minifig French painted up as Nassau line


French Line Lancers. All 6 regiments at the battle


1st


2nd


3rd. Have touched in the faults after picture taken.


4th


5th


6th


French Hussars. 3 of the 4 units at the battle

Had these 15mm Brunswickers ( old minifigs maybe?) for years, so today I painted the correct facings and flags. Just need to get 12 more infantry figs & 6 hussars to finish them off. It is believed only the 3 line Battalions had colours. The Leib Battalion is just artistic license!



Ulhans


Foot & Horse Artillery


1st, 2nd & 3rd Line Battalions


Leib Battalion & 1 Light Infantry Battalion

This weeks output hot off the bench. A start of the Dutch/ Belgian army (still need to sort out flags), and some WIP to finish, bit of rebasing and "evamping". 15mm Minifigs mostly, with odds from other manufacturers. I have revamped some odd French figures, as I feel this army will not used that often, so I will pack out the ranks with odds. All done for Shako II.

Prince of Orange Command base, 2 Divisional Commanders, 2 Battalions of Flanquers, 5 Dutch and 2 Belgian Battalions.


Orange ( Where's Sharpe?)


Flanquers


Dutch Line Battalions.


A spare Sappeur I finished for my French Army. You need about 6 for Waterloo Scenario!


Rebased this lot. Also need to paint and repainted a couple of these.


An ebay purchase need rebasing, couple to paint to make full units and Matt varnish.

Here are the 12 cuirassier Regiments and the 2 Dragoon Regiments for Waterloo. Today I painted all the correct facings and eventually got round to putting some varnish on them. There is an extra Regt of Cuirrass (13th) and 2 extra Dragoon Regt in pics that were not at the battle. 15mm various manufacturers including Minifigs, Essex (I think). All done for Shako II. These are sitting on Napoleon's Cavalry Hardback from Osprey (Smug alert £2.50 about 10 years ago in an oldy worldy bookshop)

Wow! Amazing! You are prolific!
And the glorious general led the advance
With a glorious swish of his sword and his lance
And a glorious clank of his tin-plated pants. - Dr. Seuss

To finish the weekend with some finished KGL, couple of officers and ADCs, and some WIP drop on latex terrain pieces from Timecast, and they are a bugger to find on their site.
