The 2nd Coldstream Guards, the Defence of the Hougoumon

To take a lil break from my smelly lil hobbits I painted up a command base for Napoleonic 2nd Coldstream guards unit I painted a few years back. The unit depicts the famous defense of the Hougoumont at Waterloo where the defensive forces lost 500 out of the 2000 defending it hence the high amounts of casualties in the unit. As an overall unit I don't think they look to shabby really although the lighting in the photos don't really do them too many favours. Figs are a mix of Victrix, Perry and Front Rank and I have another base to do to complete the unit at some point.

As long promised here are the photos of the 1st half of the Hobbittober Fest unit all sporting traditional Bavarian Bier Fest Attire being Bavarian Alpine style hats, traditional trachten shirt and the famous brown Lederhosen! I gave it my best shot at painting drunken red faces and it seemed to come out ok on some and not so well on others. As you can see I have also experimented a photographic board and backdrop but not to sure if this really worked for me....

So what do you think....now just another 10 lil feckers to go!!!
