52nd Light Infantry

On the home stretch now.  After this unit there are only three more to go and then I will have finished rebasing and tarting up last year's Xmas big buy.

Defending the hedge and reminding me I need a heap more hedges for Waterloo.

I picked up three sets of 24 of this painted unit.  I've rearranged the figures between the three.  I wanted a more heterogeneous look and like the way these guys have finished up looking "active" as light infantry should.

Marching up a sunken road perhaps.

Flag lifted from the Warflags site.

And to think I used to try and paint these flags by hand.

These guys were painted by Dragon Painting Service, all I have done is change the basing, done a few repairs to chipped paint, roughly over painted white on the buff webbing, changed the shako ornament and cockade and replaced the flag.

When I proudly showed them off to the family, my daughter liked the flag and my partner wanted to put them on eBay.

  3. I use the Warflags as well, especially for flags too complicated to do by hand. Nice unit you have there.
