As a Member, we can click on the Full Edit, where much larger and clearer photographs can be viewed. I have long wondered, if this well worthwhile feature is being overlooked ? So i decided to post this little reminder. Upon seeing the action upon this topic develop with great guns, smoke and armies at each other i realise the Full Edit, to be a Perk indeed. i certainly got my 33 p`s worth today.

In my overactive mind,
Like Alice Through The Looking Glass,
Here we get To Venture Through The Window.

The tension just keeps building with this one.

Great pictures once again, I love the firefight in the woods and the shot of the riflemen going into action. And the aerial shot of the landscape with the battle raging over it is just stunning.

Nice conversions for the foot artillery figures, lots of variety. And I really like the Ney figure, is he from the Waterloo 1815 white metal set?

Good tip Paul, Because I usually also see these pics at another place where they are in a larger format and I've noticed that the larger size makes these excellent pictures even better. Next time I view this topic here I'll go to the full edit feature straight away.

The best part of neglecting this forum for a few months is that I can binge view all your recent posts! As always, these are the best - the scope, the scenery and the panoramas are mind- blowing.

Thank you to everyone for their kind comments, they are very much appreciated.

Special thanks to Thomas Mischak for some of the Brunswick hussars. His skill is far superior to mine.

With respect to Graham’s question it is the Waterloo set Ney.

I do not think much to the head on this figure and have therefore swapped it.

Why do manufacturers produce marvels of uniform detail and then settle on a lump for a nose on a face?

Schilling, Franznap and the Waterloo French infantry have lovely detailed faces that bring their work to life.

Hopefully more will follow suit.

The battle is approaching crisis point for the Allies with all three French Divisions committed .

Can Picton’s 5th Infantry Division and the Brunswickers hold on until re-inforcements arrive?

Where is D’Erlon?

Best wishes,

War is sweet to those who have no experience of it,
but the experienced man trembles exceedingly at heart on its approach.
