Not much to report this week. Completed the 16 figures for british infantry unit number 2. Just needs varnishing and basing now. I'm undercoating the first 8 figures of the Scottish battalion up next.... probably the 42nd ' Black watch'. Decided to go with just one flag each for the British battalions and leave the regimental colour as I feel that 2 flags with a small 16 figure battalion looks too much.
One of my main sources of reference is a brilliant little book published in 1971 called 'Regiments at waterloo' by Rene North. I owned a copy in 1975 when I was just 17! I lost that copy but managed to find another copy on ebay some months ago, real nostalgia!
