More Work in Progress

Some rather bad pictures (apologies) of some British Lifeguards and Voltigeurs of the Garde.

The Household Cavalry come from the HELMET range, They were quite time consuming to make, as sadly is the case with mounted kits, but I eventually was fairly happy with the result. They will eventually comprise two squadrons,36 figures, and form part of the Household Brigade - much yet to be done.

The Voltigeurs are from HAT and are still very much work in progress, there will be two companies, 46 figures plus a standard bearer (no eagle) and a mounted officer, HAT head, HELMET body; legs and bits and pieces, with Historex arms. (All H's together) and a stack of Greenstuff. Next up for the French will be a company of Garde Grenadiers using the marching figures from the HAT Elites in Greatcoats pack, and Airfix heads. Hopefully some (better) photos when work is under way.

Please feel free to comment, negative or positive, or just say "Hello"



  1. Hi Eric - happy new year! Thought you'd disappeared again! Good to see you powering on with the Waterloo project. Have you decided on the rules you're going to use yet?

  2. Happy new year to you too, Bill.

    No, not yet, I think that because of the big numbers we will be moving around, we will need something a bit different. I am at the stage where I think I may have made a decision, enigmatic or what, and will post back in a few days. Good to hear from yow. Eric

  3. Hello. I've just found your blog via LittleWarsRevisted group. What a great project. I have something similar in mind (Waterloo on a 1/200 figure ratio) Got most of the figures, but they will have much more of a toy soldier look when painted. I'm very impressed by your work.

    1. Many thanks for your comments, it is good to know that others are out there with similar mindsets!

  4. Hi Eric

    One of the local wargames clubs in the North East, Durham, do Napoleonic battles in 54mm - this is the website address for their version of Waterloo:

  5. Thanks Bill, looks like a good game, cheers and take care.
