Work is busy at the moment so progress on the project is likely to slow.  I did however think this might be a good moment to take stock of how far I have got with the infantry of the Allied Army.

So far, the following units have been painted and are on the Blog:

  • 3rd Battalion 1st Grenadier Guards

Total                                                                                                8,300

Grand total                                                                                      16,000

I'm not trying to complete every unit in the Allied army, but I do need to show some from each of the brigades, so the obvious gaps are:

  • Hugh Halkett's Hanoverian Brigade
  • 1st/95th in the Sandpit
  • The remnants of Bijlandt's brigade
  • Vincke and Best's Hanoverian brigades
  • 2nd Nassau regiment at Papelotte
  • 28th Orange-Nassau Regiment
