Wow. Simply wow. A labour of years and years. Some may observe other figures to have been better painted, and no doubt they have been, but the mass effect of this splendid collection is nothing short of a complete triumph.

3,000 Old Guard, in all their guises, and conversions to boot. Only a true Grognard could have achieved this – so it does come as something of a surprise that our Grognard is none other than General Picton!

As a recent convert to 20mm I have to declare my (new found) bias, but still what a feat. It has inspired me to reach for my first Zvezda 30 OG. Now only 99.9% to go…

en masse superb.

I love to see some impression of 1;1 what an assault must have looked like. Allowing for smoke, undulations of the ground and lack of a bird's eye view. I must now get out my Adkin's and work out how many men were involved in the final attack on the ridge, allowing for possibly four separate columns of course.

It is just that this reminds me of one of the few brilliant images from Bondarachuk's Waterloo. the attack of the "Old" Guard coming straight into the camera

Quantity has its own quality, as always.

I love seeing Mr Picton's impressive displays en masse – always makes me jealous
