On a more positive note, this was a selfie Xmas present:
Mainly Austrian and Russian cavalry and artillery, but with a few French in there (including some AB Young Guard). This will really help build up my forces and will be a joy to make up and paint.
The challenge will be to see that they don't reside on lead mountain too long.
These were surplus to my friend Richard's requirements and he gave me a great deal on the lot.
I also have more Old Glory on order (hopefully in the post) that well meet some immediate Waterloo 2015 requirements.
