2nd Light battalion K.G.L 1815

Colour scheme taken from "La Haie - Sainte Waterloo 1815, les Carnets de la Campagne - N° 3"
B. coppens - P. Courchelle.
The bods are from Art Miniaturen,
30 bods...doesn´t look a lot eh?
Loading. They even usee little hammers used to drive the ball into the chamber nearly all the bods carry a hammer in thier belts.
Firing poses. The one on the right is either firing down from a wall or a roof, or onto a fallen opponent lying on the ground.
Hand to hand fighting poses.

      They are metal..not the best casts, they needed a bit of cleaning up.

    1. Thanks Vincent.
      The passion for painting..YES!!! :-D
      I´m not as productive as you...the speed and quality of your painting puts me to shame.
      I have tried with something bigger than the bods...it turned out not too bad..I think :-D

  5. Excellent painted figures Paul!

    About the one firing down, don't forget these were the defenders of La Haie Sainte. That explains the pose I think.

  12. Lovely work Paul and an interesting change of subject for you. You've managed to make a lot of bods in a fairly drab uniform look interesting. Bravo.
    Cheers,

    1. Thanks Jason.
      I had to ask what they were..I didn´t know they actually had to hammer the ball into the chamber..I knew it was difficult to load them due to the rifling in the barrel but that they used a hammer was new to me. Funny how Painting bods can teach things :-D
