Giant Commission -- More French Cavalry

The British army is now in Glenn's hands, but my work is not done.  Glenn has chosen to add a few more bases so he can really play Waterloo in style.

The first set of figures from this additional force are these 54 French cavalrymen.

1st - 4th Cuirassiers






5th - 8th Cuirassiers






9th - 12th Cuirassiers






1st and 2nd Carabiniers









2nd and 4th Lancers



Now I am working on a couple hundred French infantry.  Last week I got another delivery of more figures, so this addition will likely keep me busy four a couple more months at least!

    1. Thanks, Dean. Cuirassiers especially take a lot of work, but they do end up looking impressive.

  4. These are epic! Sorry to throw even more work at you at the end, but the shift from Divisional units to Brigade units made sense once I set up the table.
    The additional figures, while not inconsiderable, are a relatively short leap (easy for me to say).
    Luckily, the Prussian army didn't need anything extra.

    2. Did someone say ‘Ligny’? What? Oh no, it was ‘Wavre’...

  5. The effect of Brigade units for Waterloo means that the table will be amazing!
    All these cuirassier along with their brothers who are already here, charging up the hill will move grown men to tears.

    1. I can imagine the spectacle! I'm really looking forward to taking part in the game.

  6. Part of the consideration was also that the British, while they had divisions, didn't deploy them together. Trying to shove the contents of the British Divisions at Waterloo into the same area just didn't work.
