Great looking stuff…my only suggestion would be to replace his wheat field matts with teddy bear fur…

"my only suggestion would be to replace his wheat field matts with teddy bear fur"

Have to disagree. First thing that struck me was the crops in the field behind the riflemen. Brilliant effect, I thought, and hard to do. My Chasseurs a Chev of La Garde seem to be riding across a yellow toothbrush, I am told, and the explosion, my pride and joy, is said to be more like something off a coral reef.

Funny thing, back then crops really did grow over 6 foot tall….and were not yet yellow in June 1815. UK terminology is confusing as well. When I show local farming friends pics from Waterloo, they call corn, (the green stuff with leaves and a thick stem) maize. Try walking through that! It is almost impassible. Even a wheat field or a rye field cannot have been much fun, when soaking wet and over your head. I often think we forget how resticted visibility must have been in a NW Europe battlefield, on foot.

Outstanding combination of great figures, great terrain and accessories, and great photography/lighting.
