Dutch Jägers

I've just finished painting some skirmishing Dutch Jagers for the Quatre Bras project we are doing
The figures are from Eagle Figures - the first time that I've painted any figures from that company
They are good figures to paint. Obviously smaller in stature than Front Rank. Similar to Perry Miniatures
I'll probably use get some more figures from Eagle Figures for my Brunswick infantry I have to paint.

Eagle figures website is here http://www.eaglefigures.co.uk/wordpresstrial/

Quatre Bras project - 2nd Nassau Battalion

For those of you who are fans of our crazy and large scale projects - the next one in the pipeline is Quatre Bras - using a lot of the troops featured in our Waterloo game.
We are doing a much more civilised 1:20 scale for this battle - mainly because we wouldn't have enough room for the battlefield otherwise!!
My first contribution is these guys - 2nd Battalion of the Nassau Regiment

Waterloo Games Part 2 - the Historical Refight

Here are more pictures from the first Waterloo Game which was a historical re-fight of the battle back in June.

Waterloo Games Part 1 - the Historical refight

All.
I thought I'd share some of the photos from our Waterloo games this summer. I was waiting until the influx of Waterloo related posts had passed before posting my own
These photos are from the first game which was a historical re-fight of the battle.
