The Christchurch Wargaming Club is hosting the Waterloo refight on June 20th and as such I am providing Reille's Corps and some parts of Kellerman's cavalry. This amounts to something in the order of 1000 figures which I am busily sorting out. Afterwards I am tempted to sell someone of so I will how that goes but the problem is I am quite attached to some of them - oh well I can sell them when I'm older !
Only one of these is an Imperial Guard unit - a minifig Foot Chasseur unit of 24 figures. I was never going to include the Guard at all but there is that feeling deep down that I should at least have a few.
So at some stage in the next while I will try and pick up 24 Grenadiers, 24 Middle Guard, 2 guns and most likely 12 Chasseurs a Cheval. Victrix look like good candidates currently as their Middle Guard is due soon.
I have also taken the plunge and ordered two of the latest Prince August moulds for Waterloo British infantry and Nassu troops. I have always wanted to try casting my own figures so now I will get the chance. The newer moulds are more detailed I guess but this project is more to satisfy my own experiment than get some finely detailed troops. I'll get some model quality metal to try out and then look at melting my odds and sods bucket.
The odds and sods bucket is made up of the following:
- Broken front rank from the earthquake ((maybe 10 or 12)
- 25 Minifigs limber horses (Why did I buy these again ?)
- 15mm TTG Napoleonic figures .
