Here at last is the completed 45th regiment of the line parading on my worktable having just had their bases painted. To recap, these are vintage Hinton Hunt Figures that I recycled by stripping off the faded old paint job and re-painting. The unit consists of:
18 x FN5 Fusilier Charging
2 x FN1 Officer Charging
2 x FN6 Drummer Charging
2 x FN4 Colour Bearer Charging
As you know, the 45th became famous for losing their Eagle at Waterloo. This seems a bit unjust as they had previously served with distinction at Austerlitz, Friedland, Essling, Jena & Wagram, all of which were awarded as battle honours to the regiment.
I started these back at the beginning of February and they certainly have taken a long time to finish. No excuse really except for a slight diversion into another project. Anyway, I am pretty pleased with the final result.
Now for those Scots Grey’s.
