He produces a wonderful range of 1/72 Napoleonic figures and has sent me many to add to Waterloo Remodelled. He does some very unusual poses which add greatly to the masses of traditional commercially available figures. Dismounted cavalry, wounded and fallen soldiers, battlefield detritus, command sets etc

Actually, you have done me a big favour here, by sending me back to Hagen Miniatures. I suddenly noticed dismounted hussars. Just what I need to add some variety to the Chasseurs a Cheval for the Duty Squadron. Order in today!

Hello Mr D.

Hagen are excellent but the work here is actually from my friend Thomas Mischak's own massive Waterloo diorama .

It is a sight to behold, as is Jame's.

Best wishes,

Chris

Thomas's diorama is fantastic. Liam, glad you made it to those Hagens – I should have mentioned them!

A few pics of my own garden, farm and orchard at la Haye Sainte:

Funny thing about LHS. I guess it was the Airfix model that created the impression that it was "compact", but, in practice, the footprint of LHS is almost a perfect match for that of the building complex at Hougomont. The Great Barn is massive (and "Great") and, nice bit of research by your pater, did not extend as far east as it does now. You have it right there.

and yes, Hagen deserve a "plug" here.

West, not East. I was nearly right…….

@Siborne
I just noticed the Redcoats within LHS. What unit do they represent? Just curious, as afaik the KGL and Lüneburger did not wear red.

One company of 5th KGL (75 men) in red coats and possibly some of them armed with Baker Rifles?

Here I did them in 28mm

The joy of the Airfix model is that, for wargamers (rather than diorama makers) it recreates the "feel" of the real farm, but at a reduced footprint. Remember, an average Wargame unit of 700 men/36 figures, may be less than a foot long in line. So Wargames building has often work better in a slightly shrunken look.

The Airfix farm can also be kit bashed to make some of the other buildings on the battlefield

Marc… so long I don't hear about you…


Really happy to read your lines!… (smile)

Yes, I will second that.

We did miss Marc the Plastics Fan.

and I loved the Airfix LHS. I bought three over the years and, one of them, I tried to convert to nearer the real thing. It was indeed massive and I gave up
