Napoleonic Wargaming

Dutch Nassau Regiments.
 
I've always liked their uniforms and bought and painted the Front Rank figures some years ago.  These fought in Napoleon's armies early in the Wars and then were in Wellington's Allied Army in the 100 Days Campaign, so quite versatile. Anyway, recently during their Summer Sale, I bought a second hand unit from Ian Hinds. Old figures that had seen better days and didn't cost me much.
 
 
I've enjoyed rebasing them for In The Grand Manner, correcting their company "pompoms", adding pins for lost bayonets and adding a home-made Colour.
 
These are now good enough to be brigaded with their Front Rank brothers and used in any future battles.  A pleasing little project.
