So here they are - all a bit rushed, and sort of finished - in almost every photo I've noticed a plume or nose or button etc. which I've missed! This is a bad habit of mine - I'm pretty patient, slow and methodical for the early stages of a project, but as I near the end I get bored and impatient, excited to get on to the next job, so I end up hurrying through the final stages (basing figures which haven't been properly finished) and thus there's lots of little bits which I'll need to go back and fix one day. Even after the carnage of Quatre Bras, these 270 are probably a bit understrength for Waterloo so I will also one day add some more men. I have actually painted another 60 rank and file but I just don't have enough kneeling figures. If anyone has any (French or British - all can be used with a bit a conversion), I'd be keen to buy them from you.
So...what next? The 28th Foot? Some artillery? Some Life Guards? I quite fancy a crack at the 15th Hussars...I do requests and children's parties
