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!


Casualties & Guns

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.

Finished a few more 15mm Napoleonics today. Various makes. Some Russian Uhlans, Blucher command base, Some French, British and Dutch Militia, and some Divisional Officers. All done for Shako II Rules.



Divisional Officers, Lithuanian & Tartar Uhlans


Blucher Command Base. The chap on the left of Blucher as you look at picture is a spare Fantassin Spanish General, now a Dragoon General




2 French Line Battalions, or 1 if I double up units! and Divisional Officers at the back


I had some Minifigs rifles left over, so they are now Belgian Militia, A Battalion of British Guards, and a Divisional Hanovarian Officer (a Fantassin Prussian)

Earlier this year this drawer was full of unpainted 15mm Napoleonic figures. Bit of a cheat as I have just taken out all the Cavalry........To paint as a lock down challenge until January 30th 2021. To attempt to paint 200 mounted figures and about 60 foot figures. You could call it the battle of the five nations as I am attempting Prussian, Russian, Austrian, French and........Spanish🤣 Incidentally there are still about 500 - 600 figures left in the draw, believe it or not.





Ready for priming.

The start of my Club's Lockdown Challenge
Slow start, as I have also nearly finished 70 15mm horses. These are 15mm Fantassin and OG (I think). 15 Foot Russian casualties & 10 Mounted officers. Also rebased 12 Russian Dragoons, but they were not painted by me (Ebay purchase)
