Scots Greys in the Peninsular… of course! Silly me…
N'importe quoi as their adversaries would have said if they had been there!

Just going to say… Scots Greys in Spain!

Was a big ruccas about those greys on the black powder group on Facebook.
The warlord box with Scots grey will let you box will let you build regular heavy dragoons in helmet and bicorne.

Of course the uniforms are all the wrong, but warlord doesn't care enough to make proper models.

Also warlord doesn't care enough to paint 12 models as dragoons in bicorne. So they just used the 12 they had painted up as greys.

Also chasseurs in bardin coat isn't really appropriate for peninsula either.

Boo to WRLGs and all that, but could those Portuguese(single buttons) be used as plastic Dutch or Belgium at waterloo ?

The 1/72 crowd have been using Waterloo troops in the Peninsula for several decades now. Why would these plastics be any different?

Actually, we have some nice sets exclusive to the Peninsula in 1/72. So no easy let out for Warlord with these.

But the reality – they are boxed sets so will sell at shows and retailers, not to "grognards" who know their buttons.

Was there any other battle in the Napoleonic Wars than Waterloo (tongue firmly in cheek)? ;)
