The painter has made a good job of these. I remember when Victrix first released these as plastic assembly models. They made for great dragoons, eg 2nd RNBD Scots Greys, but it took more than a head swap to become Life Guards (however nicely the helmet is actually portrayed). The lace front to the jacket, docked tail on the horse, the collar patches all needed attention.

Very nice painting of the black horses with subtle highlights, less convinced by the zombie white eyes.

I do miss 28mm figures of Waterloo. Mine are all gone now, but better that than sitting in a dark attic. Thanks for posting.

Nice work but the last plate is how I like my troops, representing the rigours of campaigning.

Horses eye are generally black, unless terrified.

I found this series to be very useful.

Good work nevertheless.

Best wishes,

Hello. I think you are in BA. Coming there is a few days and was wondering please if any clubs, shops etc you could recommend in terms of wargaming or military history books etc. Visited the Army museum a long time ago back in the mid 1990s. I speak Spanish (after a fashion!)
