69th (South Lincolnshire) Regiment of Foot

After the brief diversion into the Star Wars universe earlier this week it was back at it with the red coats. This unit representing the 2nd Battalion, 69th (South Lincolnshire) Regiment of Foot during the Hundred Days Campaign.


These figures are all from the Perry Miniatures Plastic Napoleonic British Line Infantry box set and are the last complete foot unit that I'll get out of the plastic figures I have on hand, the next batch will use up the last of these with a few bases of skirmishers and such.

The standard, like the other Anglo-allied units is from the Victrix flag sheet. During the battle of Quatre Bras the Kings Colour was lost to the French cavalry when they were caught unable to form square.

The force is growing quite well, I now have five units of Anglo-allied line infantry completed, plus those 95th Rifles and a battery of Royal Artillery. 

I plan to add a few skirmisher bases and some commanders over the coming days and then make a start on some Highlanders to join the force. I am not sure if I'm ready to start painting tartan yet so may instead do some Light Dragoons.

I'll be on vacation for a few days, so it's likely to be a couple of weeks before my next post.

    1. Well Adie, it's what the locals call a holiday. What they call an holiday is something entirely different, madness I know.
      I' will not even start on what they call bits of a car.
