|Close up...the strains of "Command" are starting to show!|
A few more happy snaps of action from the 28mm General De Brigade table for D'Erlons attack.
|With La Haye still under attack the French continue the assault on Mont Saint Jean|
|7th Hussars await the order to advance. Old Foundry figures but still stylish.|
|Jacquinots Light Cavalry Division - Lancers.|
|Chasseurs a Cheval and Horse artillery make up the rest of the formation.|
|I think I would veer away as well with a trumpet blowing in my ear! Front Rank Household cavalry|
figures - Life Guards at the ready.
|KGL Light Infantry advance past La Haye Sainte to support their countrymen in the garrison.|
|More French pour into the assault on the allied right flank|
|The overview of the allied left flank. In the centre the Scots Greys charge to glory!|
|The French 102nd Regiments 1st battalion is hit by Bens charge.|
One of the highlights of the day was a charge by the Scots Greys (who else!) from the Union Brigade. The French had been given Best's Hanoverian's a hard time on this table and the Dutch of Bylandt were also on the receiving end.
Ben, playing Ponsonby, managed to hit a battalion in column. He rolled the most wonderful of dice in General De Brigade, a double six.
|The enemy are routed, the dice deem the colours are captured and the work I spent on this vignette to have it |
finished just the night before all seems quite worth it. Well done son, unlucky Andrew.
|The colours are secured and taken to the rear. Not the French 45th as in actual history of the battle, but good|
nevertheless for the British and their allies!
|Bylandt is pushed off the ridge as the Highlanders prepare to counter attack under Pack.|
|The Union Brigades success forces the French into squares.|
|French artillery superiority during the battle was marked. Brigadier Alex indeed shot well.|
|Forced into an uncontrolled charge the Scots Greys become isolated and a wonderful artillery target!|
|On the allied right flank the Household Cavalry move up to support La Haye Sainte.|
More to follow later in the week.
