Nice work on the army as always, Ratch. Your work on these figures has inspired me somewhat to have a go at some 72nd scale figures again.

These are the Belgian element of the HaT 8096 set, as 3rd & 7th Line Battalions

These are the flank companies of the 3rd & 7th Line Battalions. These were Belgian units and I used the HaT 8025 bodies with Airfix 01745 heads

An addition with an alteration. I decided to add a mounted officer to the 2nd Battalion, 2nd Regiment of Grenadiers (Old Guard) and use the figure he replaced with the Emperor and his servant Roustam from the Italeri 6016 French Imperial General Staff set

I have added some scatters and barbed wire to my ancient Bellona vac-form trench diorama. The reverse (underneath) was filled with expanding polystyrene foam to give the 30+ year old vac-form some rigidity.

I found 8 more HäT 8014 Napoleonic King’s German Legion Light Dragoons and have added 6 Italeri 6094 British Light Cavalry to make the 2nd Light Dragoons, King's German Legion

Keeping yourself busy I see Ratch. :lol:

Some lovely work going on here and a very good tip using expanding foam to stiffen up that vac form base. Will have to remember that one.

Cheers, I reckon you could make a hole and 'plant' trees into the stuff :razz:

You are indeed keeping yourself nicely busy, Ratch. I remember Bellona from donkey's years ago - are they still going?

The trench base looks really good; is it going to be populated with more figures?

You're very prolific. Where do you store/display what mist be hundreds of models by now?

Every now and then I have a cull, some get binned and others given away ;-)
