    Made a start on this super collaboration from Gordon Mitchell and Carl Reid depicting the Coldstream Guards at Hougomont. I know from the threads that Misfit 151 and Red Five are also tackling the same set and no doubt it will be a very popular set. Hope to do it justice as I have an affiliation with the Coldstreamers through my father who served with them in the 60's.

    Major project this. Hope it goes well but looks like a great start Is there a representation of the north gate or will you be knocking something together?

    Hi Jon, there are two gates cast with parts 1 and 3 which will be used but I may add a section of wall either side, not decided yet.

    Thanks Brian. I probably will end up with some part of the wall but just waiting on the release of the French contingent to try and gauge the final size of the groupings.

    This is a great dio and I'm curious about your rendition. Looks nice so far, it just wanted a bigger and better photo.

    Cheers Borek
