To bulk out my forces for the recent Waterloo game I bought a load of these 'Supreme' figures from Gary at Tiger Hobbies. While they could never be accused of being the world's finest 54mm figures they were startlingly cheap, already painted and actually rather nice. The French all sport bicorne hats - save for some guards with bearskins - while the (slightly taller) Brits have shakos.

Above is the castle itself - the scruffiest of my trio of Elastolin-style structures.

The Prussians hove into view.
On the Allied right a huge cavalry encounter was in the offing
The defenders of LHS and the sandpit prepare to repel boarders
Hougoumont - with more French cavalry having a look
The mighty rocket troop in action.
Here come the Prussians!
Russian 1914 reservists is entirely coincidental. After all, the figures are actually Landwehr!
French cavalry attach British squares...
...in a rather cinematic fashion!
It's a bloody business
13 Legre had a bit of a pasting as they approached LHS
Blucher does some world-class pipe pointing
What a sight!
Just as LHS looked threatened a load of hairy Highlanders appeared.
Guess who. The flag is a clue...
While LHS held out...
...the sandpit was under threat...
... and soon fell to a horde of French cavalry.
LHS shrouded in smoke. How did we achieve such special effects?
Twas none other than our very own Conrad Kinch!
All in all a thoroughly splendid day. Lots of toys, a great group of players fine victuals and even decent weather!
So now to plan the next such extravaganza.....
