After several months without posting, I would like to update readers on the next steps with the Waterloo project.
We showcased Plancenoit, La Belle Alliance, Hougoumont, La Belle Alliance and Papelotte at the National Army Museum, now we are going to show the ground between Hougoumont and La Haie Sainte where the Allied squares stood and where the French cavalry charged. Many of the squares were completed between 2015 and 2020 and can be seen in back editions of this blog.
Many of the French cavalry were done even earlier between 2013 and 2015. This was in the phase of the project when I was working alone.
Now I have 81 people helping out and production is quite a bit faster! Here are some images provided by the painters of their work, and some of other connected initiatives.
I'd to start with 3d printing. We are experimenting with downscaling 1/32 to 1/72. The smoother the figure, the easier the job but, so far, things like woolly shabraques have defeated the computer. We are working on painting in a grey undercoat to see if this helps.
