Quatre Bras June 16th 1815
This Diorama is bassed on the the 28th British regiment being charge by the 10th French cuirassiers
The 28th along with the royals with load shouts advanced into the midst oy the enemies cav. The ground ahead of them was sarming with lancers, chasseurs and cuirassiers, advancing until the last possible moment, Picton suddenly formed sqaure. They were repeatedly charged and took frequent casualties from lancers each time the cavalry pulled back to reform artillery on the hills in front would open up on them causing many casualties. This diorama depictics the moment when Picton yells remember Eygpt and with load cheers they unleashed a tremendous volley hurling back the attacking cav in great disorder
The moment of impact
Well i hope you've enjoyed this is much as i have they are really great Minatures these British are designed to fit with AB Minatures British which they do very well, I've just sold my British army and intend on starting it again using a mix of both Eureka British and AB British I'll let you know how it goes when i get to tackle it

This is the first of a Battalion of french from the eureka minatures wars of the french revolution range
The figures are amazingly detailed and i have had a lot of fun painting them
Haven't made up my mind how i will base this officer by itself or with the infantry as i have never based any 28mm before. Let me know your opinon.

I had a bit of fun today and painted another few figures for my British
i think that when i get back from up north i'm going to have to really get serious with these guys they are so much fun to paint.
the next thing will be basing these guys. I think basing 28mm figures will be a bit different than 15mm as it will really bring the figures to life or dull them down

Well now it's time to start working out where I'm going to place the figures, or should i say a general idea I'm really happy with the way the figures have come up but now i realise i'll have to go shopping to find some new grasses.
I just realised that i will need to get some help to get a great shot of these guys it's not as eassy when they are set out as i thought
As you can hopefully see the flags are finished
might have to make sure that there is a defined corner to the
front of the square looks abit rounded in theis picture
what do you think is there enough on the french side or should i add a few french dead?
