I've made a diorama of a British square under attack, please have a look on the following link:

Excellent, love the cavalrymen flipping over their horses!

Nice! Now you need a few more to replace the rest of your battalions…

Great fun to follow all the pictures and try to identify the various figures. Perry, Front Rank especially, Westfalia, Victrix? (I think)

I love the poor chap with a haemoptysis/haematemesis…….so well done but I doubt he will collect his Waterloo Medal.

The fallen cuirassier removing his armour…is that an original or "just" a brilliant conversion?

Who does that pioneer? Never seen him before either.

Amused by the weight involved as well. I learnt that from my recent Zastrow cuirassiers

Great effort all over, can't fault any of the figures as they are well painted.

Nice enough hand painted colours but you have skimped a bit on your research of the diagonals on the Union flags.

Thanks for your comments !

The flipping horsemen are from Perry, of course.

The cuirassier removing his breastplate is an original from Foundry, only his dead horse is a conversion.

The pioneer is from Victrix.

I have loved to paint the drum-major which is from Trent Miniatures.

The soldier vomiting blood is from Warlord.

I've also used miniatures from Offensive Miniatures and maybe another company…

Superb painting and a lot of things going on.

Personally I Like my troops to be filthy in order to represent the realities of campaigning.

The vomiting guy is unusual but his musket looks enormous.

Probably optical.

Well done, you have captured the 'spirit' of the thing.

Love the vomiting casualty and the detail on that Colour Serjeant sleeve is amazing!
