The Big Three for 1815
Wellington, Napoleon and Blucher from the Del Prado Relive Waterloo range
Whilst the Emperor is still waiting on his infantry and artillery both Wellington and Blucher have no such difficulties. The last of the collection to have its bases dealt with are on the painting tray and a couple of items of generic terrain are currently under construction. All being well I may be in a position to fight an inaugural action over the Easter weekend which would be just peachy if I can swing it.
I am also looking to get my Tradition order together which will enable me to finish up the collection. My basic rule of thumb is to only use figures that the Del Prado range does not provide and to keep any additional units to a minimum.
Having said that I have two Minifigs 20 figure strong cavalry units to incorporate - Dragoons and line Chasseurs a Cheval - and they do look rather nice alongside some of the cavalry types.
Going forward I will also need to think about storage.
Still a way to go then but thus far it is going well.
