one of the two fine sets from Andi with the Soldiers waiting or forming a square.

Newline Design Hanoverian Landwehr Command / Ensign of a Landwehr Contingent.

Newline Brunswick Cavalry Lancers

Hagen Dutch Carabiniers


Prussian Army of the Lower Rhine

Newline Dragoons

Newline Artillery / Gunner and a piece

Hi. Thanks for letting me in! I'll go for the KAMAR Hannoveraner soldier forming a square. I like the pose. I would love to go for something else, but I am afraid I cannot manage by end of April. Keep you updated on progress.

The Strelets figures arrived very quick from E Models.So I can paint one up for this group build very quick. On some of the metal models there is a shipping time of two weeks, so the time factor now is very close for any wishing to place orders,paint them, and then post them on by the end of April. BB

The Hannoverians from KAMAR are a good choise I think. Thank you very much for being part of the show. And it is an obligation for Bonner to be present at the FIGZ in June! I am looking Forward to see pictures from your figure. And to Point it out again: Only one figure you like most of the set is needed.

Btw: In case of I will paint the rest of the figures myself, no Problem. We will have all present at the FIGZ. :-D

Update from today: Andi from Hagen Miniatures will paint the Hagen Special Figure for the Waterloo-Diorama.

I think this is really great because their figure is really a symbolic situation for this battle. So one more figure is vanished from the list and we reach the final stage. I am very busy actually but I hope I can post some new pictures this weekend. Then some letters should have reached the "Diorama Headquarter" which gives ne impressions of the whole thing.

Short report: I'm almost done with my part of the job. Bonaparte is painted, I only need to finish the Centbase (or should I say Groschenbasis?).

If needed, I can take another one or two foot figures, but as I own none of the sets mentioned above, someone must send them to me.
