Amazing. Hope he finds a home for them.

Brilliant find. En masse you would expect them to look this good. What is really impressive is the close up views of cavalry, artillery train, the headgear on the Guard Infantry.

Handling these must be challenging. I mean moving a unit across the table without too much finger contact with the figures themselves. Actually I have always wondered about that in any wargaming use, whatever the scale.

Mine sit on a shelf, until they go into plastic boxes in the attic.

Why do you want to avoid the finger contact with figures?
This is not affect to painting really, the modern paints are very durable.

That's what the bases and the spray cans of Humbrol 49 are for….

Interesting Guy!
I got ot meet him at a Historicon…. across the wargaming table. I got my first ever butt waxing, in some 20 + years of gaming the NAP French! He knows the period well and makes for an exceptional General/worthy opponent too!

Impressive to see it all done on 1 to 1 scale. Hard to imagine building a display for something this big but even looking at the square in its proper deployment is awe inspiring.

Great find. When you look at what he has achieved it helps ease the pain when you look at your unpainted metal masses and gives you inspiration to carry on. Mind you, I wish I had his shelf units.

Watching this second time…this chap is amazing.

I wish the narrator would stop calling it WAAA-terloo, but our UK version is just as odd to the locals. They call it VAW-terlow.

Whatever you call it, this many 6mm figures commands respect. No suggestion he chucks dice and games with them. Poor devil would be happy to see them in a museum for the 200th Anniversary. Well that tells you, no takers. These beat the Siborne Figures, themselves, hands down (OK apart from the age, the provenance, the scenery, the whole story of the model, what has Siborne ever done for us that the Romans did not, other than sanitation, the roads, the laws etc etc?)

Are these based for a particular ruleset?
