Gerry, that's pretty awesome. I think I might need to revisit the site to take it all in.

Man, this stuff takes me back!

Back to the days when there were no Napoleonic figures, and everybody had to be converted. I recognize specific figures, including Airfix WWI casualties. Good conversions!

Great lighting on the photography, as well. No substitute for good photography.

Amazing model, dedication and unparalleled commitment. Fantastic stuff. You certainly get a sense of a huge battle in action in dynamic proportions across the model in terms of scale and quantity of models. Just incredible. Thank you for sharing with us all.

Looks incredible! It's amazingly dynamic, and impressive, don't think I've painted that many miniatures in my whole life!
