So, after a long discussion here are some new evidence about the rooftiles of the famous farm...

1. here is  a very interesting site with many informations and thoughts  http://generalpicton.blogspot.com/2016/07/la-haye-sainte.html
2. However, I think that the answer I am asking for is given here: http://www.waterloo-campaign.nl/notes/june18/note.4.pdf
"The farm consists of a series of outbuildings around a courtyard. In 1815 the roofs of those
buildings were covered with slate tiles"  [as in the deed of sale dated 20th March 1775 Cf.Aerts, W. – Etudes (manuscript) p.92-97] the
So, I finally decided to paint it GREY-SLATE with white walls and not red bricked walls.
And the result is here!

Miltiades, you did a great paintjob on this old, classic Airfix model! I admire your careful weathering!
I had the luck to see the model in action, your aerial view pic is the best, you made even the pond and the garden! Cheers!
And d'Erlon's attack game was exciting (and a very close run thing) too!
