Grand Review

Before I cleared away the figures following the recent game I thought it would be a good idea to hold a grand review. All my Hinton Hunts are on the table with the exception of the individually based skirmishers and some of the personality figures (which weren't used in the scenario) and the Austrian Hussars who were somehow left off the OOB.

5 units French cavalry, 7 units French infantry, 4 units allied cavalry and 12 units allied infantry + 5 allied artillery (the French artillery had already been cleared away) - approximately 600 figures.
The French infantry
Allied cavalry and infantry
The French and allies friends for once for the photo shoot
The French cavalry
The Silesian traffic wardens
My favourite unit of the moment - 42nd Black Watch
British foot guards
The Cambridgeshires
Nassau grenadiers
Three cheers for the naval battalion!
9th legere
45th ligne - what can I say?
Combined grenadier battalion
The allies
The French
If it wasn't for the lead mountain I'd be tempted to say this project is over.

Nice review, it's great to put everything out on display like that, but no, project not over - there's always just one more unit, or a 'must buy' spotted on ebay...

Marvellous - a credit to you sir ! Huzza I say ! , Tony

MSFoy said...

Splendid - absolutely marvellous. It was a great privilege to see them in action!

Xaltotun is quite right. The dogs may bark, but the caravan and thus the project, moves on. Parading is an integral oart of collecting these lovely old figures, how smart and eager they look n their pristine finery.
Maybe you should have a bit of a theme such as building each nation to a certain size, or a paricular orbat. Need I point out that you still have the Peninsula to do and lots of interesting allied units?

Splendid display- a credit to you Ian - it's been quite awhile though now near completion you are reaping the rewards of a job well done and an interest in Hintons that has endured time itself! Regards. KEV.

Now, this is the sort of scene that does the heart good. 'Wonderful' seems a understatement.

Best Regards,

A magnificent work of art, Ian.

Nice to see the jolly jack tars getting an outing. I've got some 15mm ones but they rarely make it out of the box.

Matt said...

A stirring sight! It brings back fond memories already!

What an inspiring display.

Happy to see the heroic Swiss battalion back in the line. My salutations to them. And the Silesians must surely have graduated beyond postal executive status?

Stryker said...

Nigel - I'm thinking the Silesians must be at least 'B' grade now!

lewisgunner said...

Ooh the Guard grenadiers will be down to B then?

Stryker said...

I don't think so Roy - I'm thinking of introducing A++ for them!
