Napoleonic Christmas or Look what santa left!!!

Happy New Year Gents,
I thought whilst the slates are being blown off the roof (one narrowly missing the wife's car) I would get the Christmas goodies out for some pics!
These are primarily for the Peninsular but with some Prussians purchased might end up heading towards Waterloo.
Still a lot to come through from the painters this year War office working on the Light Dragoons at presen,t Dave Jarvis on Portuguese line and James Roach on more Romans before he gets at my Italian wars stuff so plenty to come over the next few weeks new buildings from Touching History next week, also could be buying another ready made army but more of that if it happens!


EBay purchase from Waterloo Miniatures tent and lady at the back already part of the collection!
More Perry British by The War Office once again improvised flags.
Victrix Portuguese by the War office 2 battalions arrived.
French command from EBay which is a dangerous thing when you have time on your hands!

Another eBay buy from Waterloo Miniatures if I do head towards Waterloo I will definitely use these Calpe miniatures.
Thanks for stopping by!
Best wishes
Willie

  1. Very nice troopers, Sir. The sculpt of the soldier "too-pooped-to-pop" (just plain worn out) is a keeper.

  2. You must have been a very good boy this year - love the tent lady - no army is complete without one.

  4. You are a very bad boy Willie, with the eBay purchases. If my wife ever totes up my own purchases, I shall refer her to you. ;-) Simon
