I've been working on the various cavalry regiments that formed the French Reserve Cavalry at Waterloo the largest of which was the Guard Chasseurs. Given its size this has been a major labour of love as I wanted to produce the regiment in full dress. There is no plastic set which shows them in this order of dress so I've had to bring together a combination of plastic conversions and available metal figures. The result is that the regiment has figures from all the plastic hussar options (Esci, Italeri, Zvezda, Hat and Strelets) along with metal Newline, Kennington, Marc Claus, Art Miniaturen, Hinton Hunt and Alberken. There are 800 figures shown here, 600 painted by me and 200 by an anonymous supporter. You can see more here on my blog:

Sorry about the lighting for this post, this was the only table big enough to take this lot.

How long would it take to move each one of those figures in a charge across the table?

These aren't for wargaming but for a 1:1 diorama of Waterloo

A beautiful collection! 1:1 would need 1223 men (26 Mamelukes)
