I’m very pleased with the way this figure turned out. It’s a conversion of PN64 Prussian General (mounted) looking through spy-glass but as the observant among you will have noted his telescope has been removed and arm re-positioned. During this process I inevitably cut off the peak to his cap and his nose and these had to be reconstructed with Magic Sculp.
I have decided he will represent Colonel Von Hiller who commanded the 16th Brigade at Waterloo. This Brigade included the 1st and 2nd Silesian Landwehr Regiments (which I now have in my OOB) and took part in the fighting at Plancenoit.
I found this on 16th Brigade:
Hiller’s 16th Brigade formed line and the six battalions marched directly on Plancenoit, determined to oust the French defenders; with the 14th Brigade moving up in their rear to form a reserve. The Prussian assault was initially successful, pushing the French defenders back, as far as the open space around the church which sat on a small hillock and was surrounded by a defensive wall. Here they met a furious resistance and the advance was halted.
Just shows what you can do with 2 units of Silesian Landwehr.
