How about that? A unit painted and completed in less than a month and in temperatures never exceeding 7C in the Hut. Gentlemen, I give you the 60th Rifles.

Thanks to Tony for furnishing me with some superb castings to make up the numbers on this unit.

In other news, Goya and I managed to play out the CCN basic Waterloo scenario this week. I played the French and was completely trounced 8 to 1 by that cunning fox Wellington, what a drubbing!
|The initial dispositions. In this scenario the game ends at 3.00pm just before the Prussians arrive.|
|My men attack Hougoumont (that might be Foy on that horse!).|
|That didn't work out too well. Having been used to playing Tony's Ramekin rule version it was quite brutal to play the original rules!|
|Cavalry Charge - when you have that card you just can't resist can you?|
|The French army is melting away. The Guard Grenadiers are attempting to attack La Haye Saint (in the mid distance) while just beyond them the Scots Greys are ploughing into my line.|
|Final positions - it's back to Paris for a re-think.|
