And here we have 8th Dutch Militia. Perry metals again.



The brigade is support by a single section of Dutch Foot Artillery. The battery got badly mauled at Quatre-Bras so only two 6pdr guns made it onto the field at Waterloo. This is represented by a "Tiny" battery on a single 10x10 base (half-batteries of 2 sections will be 2 guns on a 15x10cm base, standard 3 section batteries on 20x10cm and large batteries will have 4 guns on 30x10cm bases).



This wraps up 1st Brigade. 2nd Brigade will have to wait a bit as I am still missing a few Nassau models - replacing miscasts from Eagle Miniatures. I will migrate to some cavalry instead, now that the horses are completed.

Donít take this the wrong way, but having given up all thought of pursuing Napoleonics in any scale after a number of failed attempts - I hate you so much right now.  ;) ;) ;) :o

Let the hate flow through you :). Just for you, I had to take a bit of a painting break due to travel. Now that I am back home, here is the start of the 3rd Cavalry Brigade with its KGL core. The brigade is commanded by MG Sir Doernberg. Below we have 23rd Light Dragoons with their red facings.

And here we have 2nd KGL Light Dragoons with white lace compared to the gold/yellow lace for the 1st.



This completed 3rd Cavalry Brigade. By tradition of this thread, I am adding another Royal Horse Artillery battery. This time it's Captain Mercer's famous G Troop. Two sections of 9pdr and one of 5.5" howitzers.

Flippin heck you are churning this stuff out at an impressive rate. I was looking at my own 28mm Napoleonic project this weekend I've managed six battalions of 16 miniatures, 2 units of skirmishers 8 miniatures each, I cavalry unit 8 miniatures, 2 guns and crew and a few commanders and casualty markers in six months of work since January.....I think that's about a week's painting for you 🤣

Diablo Jon - maybe not quite a week, but I am trying to get this one done for sure :).

CapnJim - thank you again :)

After so many "exotic" units, I thought I would return to the trusty redcoats for a bit. So we will have a crack at the much reduced 6th British Division. First we have MG Sir Lambert, acting commander of the Division. He is accompanied by a Captain of 4th Foot as his ADC "counter".



The main fighting formation of 6th Division was 10th British Brigade. Since its brigade commander, Sir Lambert, was leading the Division, I made up Lieutenant-Colonel Brooke of the 4th Foot as brigade commander. He would have been the senior officer on the field - the other battalions being commanded by Majors - but in reality I suspect that Sir Lambert directly commanded the brigade since his "division" didn't contain much else.



And here we have I/4th Foot, the King's Own Regiment with their blue facings and gold lace. All very standard Perry plastics as usual.

I hate to sound like a broken record, but those sure are nicely painted figures....

CapnJim - broken record or not, I appreciate it.

Here we have II/40th Foot, the 2nd Sommersetshire regiment. This was a large battalion, one of the largest on the field at Waterloo.



This completes 10th British Brigade since the fourth battalion - II/80th Foot - was detached at Hal and thus absent from the battle.
