I love to see such figures in a campaign look, with mud, cloaks and not in a "heroic" pose. He looks just right for 18th June at close of play anyway

In which case should most British troops be painted mud covered and with pink straps, as the reports seem to suggest the uniform colour ran over night in the rain. Some first hand accounts say the uniform details were undistinguishable under the mud

Nah, "we" love our Naps in full dress and bright colours, with plumes adorned and flags fluttering 😀

Very interesting. I'm a re-enactor and have recently got back from the Quatre Bras re-enactment (Yes, they did it early). We camped, drilled and fought the battle by the Gemiancourt farm.
It was a very enjoyable event and your figures have not only reminded me of that event, but of being a Hinton Hunt collector when I was at school in the 60's.
Lovely painted figures.

Hi Davejl,

Do you have any photos of your event? Which unit are you with?

Hi Bookwizard,

There are photos on our regimental site. I'm in the 21st French line regiment, so if you Google our site you'll see lots of photos of the event.

Best Wishes davejl
