Oh wow ... this is very near to a movie :shock:
... that's exactly how I feel about it :o
simply made plain awesome,
you tell us the story of the battle in a wonderful chronology,
one believe to be in the center of the happenings and to be part of the events. :shock:

Dear Master of Quatre Bras,

My compliments again for so many more spectacular 'eyewitness' or 'moviestills' of this gruesome battle.
There is many favorite pictures of mine in this series.
Like the ones Sala already showed us. And many many more.

Great work,

Cryns

Hello Mr C, nice to hear from you and thank you for your kind comments.

I am afraid that the Dutch are a bit ‘ bashed up’ but they fought a magnificent fight, as per the original, to slow the French down and buy time.

Now it’s Picton, some Nassau and the Brunswickers turn to do their bit.

Best wishes,

Chris

Hey Chris,

Exactly up my alley: very good use of the figures available on the market for creating such scenes: I even spot a few Strelets in the mix. Hospitals are not easy to depict, by no means.
Cudos: job is spot on!

Dear Master of Quatre Bras,

Impressive work again.
You still do make the most bloody scenes of all of us, when I look at that hospital.
My favorite detail are the red caps of the Hannover troops. Well known but seldom seen in miniature.
And I love your way of picturing all of it.
Well done.

Regards,

Cryns
