Napoleonic Command stand - General Hugh Halkett

General Halkett looks over teh field - lovely Perry Miniatures

As part of the constant growth of my Napoleonic collection, late last year I finally based these two figures in order to provide some brigade commanders for my Anglo-Dutch army at Waterloo.

One of the beautiful character figure packs that the very talented Perry twins have designed include a number of divisional and brigade generals.  In this case, I have based up the reasonably talented General Hugh Halkett who commanded the 3rd Hanoverian brigade in Clinton's 2nd Division at Waterloo.

Brunswick Mounted Colonel figure painted as a Hanoverian ADC

The command stand works well with the added field puddles in my opinion

Halkett also served in the Peninsular and saw some action with the independant KGL under Von Alten.

Really need to straighten up that bloody sword!
 A few more command stands to post in the coming week

    1. Thank you Chris. The base came together well and I would like to try basing a full cavalry regiment in the same style.

    1. Thank you Paul. The DPS boys did a wonderful job on painting these particular fellows that's for sure - however the basing is all mine.

    1. Thank you very much Peter. The base ended up looking reasonably effective I must say. No, the fodder was not too green that's for sure!
