Ah, better! :-D

I like to present my first figure for the dio: A soldier from the 2.Light Battalion KGL, the defenders of La Haie Saint.

Image

I have painted more because only one figure is a waste of color. ;-) But this is the figure for the dio.

Image

The next will be Waterloo1815 Netherland Horse Artillery

Image

And after that I like to start with the Luneburg Jaeger 1813-1815 advancing (Loading pose)

Image

Keep on painting. And it is nothing more than one figure from the list to be part of the project...

Looking great!

...and my Prussian Jager for the BFFFWP is virtually done. The Nassau grenadier maybe 2/3rds of the way there too.

Ah, those good old Airfix French infantry are taking me back to my youth (oh no, getting emotional now) :cry:

Cool and fun with so many participating. I have a little problem! Colour on the turnbacks! White, white with red piping or red? No clear answer in any of my sources. Checked North, Haythornthwaite and others.

Ole Shakeyhands has been working. This is probably the best I can do with them. The lancer was painted about 15 years ago and will probably not get better. The horse is another matter. And I am going to give them a wash before they go. :-D

Hey Gunnar,

nice work from you. I think the first Napi-topic I see from you...? But the trousers from the Lancer should be blue I think. Maybe you can give them second chance.

But up to you... No stress in the Hobby ;-)

My memory says I was trying to give him campaign dress. I am happy to try to change that.

And here's my contributions now virtually finished. I painted small groups in one go but will choose which to send on. I've based them on coins only for painting purposes, these will be removed before despatch!

The Nassau Grenadiers:

...and, oh dear, this one was wounded in action this morning and broke a leg (...I trod on him). :roll:

And also HaT's Prussian Jager:
