Everyone I watched doing Warlord Games reviews on You Tube, are showing the names of those who packed the plastic boxes. Thanking them for doing so.

Concern was raised here as the name was on view, but it still remains here so it ain`t a big deal after all.

Being sponsored by this company they do not show the down side of failings caused by it.
Here within this topic I have from the very first page, to this my last one , named them all.
I do not wear a sponsors bridle so I can. BB

The 2nd Nassau from `Front Rank',defending Hougoumont, ( Goumont ), and La Haye Sainte. These German troops were superb soldiers and they were in the heaviest fighting throughout the Battle of Waterloo.

I resolved my head of over thinking and bought a few at £1.25 each. This is a good price because War Lord Games plastic figures are nearing this mark anyway.

British Infantry

A Pack of 23.

Fighting alongside them at Hougoumont, defending the walls are the Light Company of The Coldstream Guards . It was quite a prolonged scrap that bleed Bonaparte`s infantry battalions dry.

The 95th Rifles These will mix in nicely with the metal War Lord Games figures already shown.

Scots Guards marching and in advance.

Well that`s it. BB

Very good looking figures. But I hope to stay away from other 28mm than Perry.

The painted versions you have just shown to us are quite well done. Has your painting hand grown steadier?

Well I never painted those in the photographs they are from on line photo galleries showing what is actually in the packages.

My hands are much better than they were at the beginning of this year. ( 2018 )
So a little progress has been made possible on the painting front,but not much.

The reviews of War Lord Games box art ,and the figures shown here report several faults with these kits.

The unnatural knees up of British, German, Hanoverian and French Grenadiers seen above are my reasons for not recommending them at all.

:mrgreen: They are all one and all ,treading Grapes with boots on. BB

I find it's not the money, it's the storage. Before painting it's into the stash which is a heap of boxes full of boxes and a few drawers for metals, bases etc. After painting they need even more room and MrsG keeps me restricted to using only 3 rooms (including the attic) :-D

One can also say, that if you do not buy so many figs you could use the money for a bigger appartement. But in general you are right, both factors a important.
