William, Prince of Orange (1792-1849) took part in the Waterloo campaign, where he commanded at both Quatre Bras and Waterloo. He is known to have indicated an advance at Quatre Bras by waving his hat, and this pose closely resembles at least one portrait of him by Nicaise de Keyser depicting that event.

Frederick William, Duke of Brunswick (1771-1815) was a relentless opponent of Napoleon and was killed at Quatre Bras leading his Brunswicker troops. On that day his uniform is uncertain but generally thought to be hussar-like in style, with an undress hussar cap on his head, and is usually depicted much as shown on this figure.

Lieutenant-General Sir Thomas Picton (1758-1815) came out of retirement to participate in the Waterloo campaign. He famously wore civilian costume throughout the Hundred Days, and was often described with umbrella in hand. Picton was killed at Waterloo leading the 5th British Infantry Division against d’Erlon’s assault. This figure has authentic gentleman’s attire and the top hat Picton was wearing when he was killed (which still exists today).

British Officer. This man is fairly typical of a British infantry officer and is dressed as per regulation.

Highland Officer. This chap wears breeches and a version of the fly plaid known as the ‘highland scarf’.
Image
Image

Netherlands Officer. This man is mainly clothed in typical officer’s uniform for the Netherlands.
Image

French Officer, is correctly dressed and includes his gorget.
Image
Image

French Officer. This man has chosen to wear a single-breasted surcoat, which was a common choice at the time.
Image
Image

French Imperial Guard Officer. In full uniform.
Image
Image

Nassau Jäger Officer. This man wears a shako and uniform of French style, which is correct despite no longer serving with the French at this time.

That is a great collection of figures Ratch, each with an excellent paint job. Love the history with each one too. Thanks
