Whilst looking at an amazing dio here´s a Nice game to Play
Spot which make and set each bod Comes from

from:
http://en.diorama.ru/gallery/dioramas/5284/
Virtually every sigle bod is heavily converted but some can still be recognised.
Photo 20.
I reckon the pair (one carrying another over his shoulders) is (pre alterations) from the Airfix French inf set and in the middle there´s one (rear rank at the Level of the mounted officer) who Looks like he´s one of the loading bods from the airfix Waterloo british and one or two who could also be airfix poses (Holding their muskets at the slope)
Injured bod with legs spread, Airfix WWI british inf.
Photo 15..top right, the guy supporting the other..Esci WWII British Soldiers

Outstanding !
The groundwork seems a little bit too clean for me.

I think the horse of the mounted officer is coming from Italeri French staff of Napoleonic wars

Could I try my eyes?

Impressive !

I am only able to identify figures in the center. All figures who build the square are so close and the color red and white are so dominant. Very hard to pic a lonely figure out with my eyes.
I agree with all mentioned pose Paul explains.

Thank you for shearing with us.

There's another pair of a man supporting a wounded comrade here.

http://en.diorama.ru/gallery/dioramas/5284/photo19/

I think this is made from the upper bodies of the pair in this set. With the bonnet swapped for a Belgic and, presumably some leg swaps.

The legs of the casualty on the left might just be from the awful musket clubbing figure from the same set.

I think there may be a good number of figs from Italeri's British infantry1815 set.

Officer with sword raised, photo 15 bottom right- Italeri´s British Infantry 1815.
The same bod (sword arm replaced) has been used as one of the foot artillery (directly behind the mounted officer) and another of the foot artillery is also from the same set (Hand behind his back)
