Ah, what a big army Richard! 😬 These may require a lot of work.

Time to move on to the other half of the HäT 8097 set - the Nassau Grenadiers

They need fusiliers and light troops to make up the 2nd Nassau-Usingen Light Infantry Regiment. For these I am using HäT set 8147.

I have swapped heads on one of the fusilier officers to make him a Senior Officer.

The family of King William I of the Netherlands also held the German state of Nassau, so Nassau's forces formed part of the Netherlands army. These forces comprised 8.5 battalions at Waterloo, and had a strength of over 5,000 men, or roughly 10% of the total Allied infantry (some sources suggest as many as 7,000 men). Each battalion had six companies, one of which was of grenadiers.

Black first, yellow second. I usually paint inside out (things that go over are painted after what goes under) i.e. skin, boots, trousers, jacket, facings, belts, roll, pack, headwear, and finish with the base.

I'm currently repainting these Revell British Infantry (02571). There are 23 of them forming the centre companies with 6 Italeri (6095) as the Grenadier and Light companies with one HäT (8304) officer making up the compliment for the 3rd Battalion, 1st Foot Guards.

Some more figures for me to fall back on between other work. An old set of Esci 218 and the re-issued Italeri 6039. All the same mouldings. 23 figures to become the 1er Régiment de chevau-légers lanciers Polonais de la Garde Impériale

An impressive project Ratch.  Think everything I've seen is Waterloo?

Various sources give conflicting information on the Trumpeter and Officer uniforms, so I've hedged my bets.
