    Hello,

    After finishing my last object (The Roll Call http://www.planetfigure.com/threads/the-roll-call.112435/) I start with my next one.

    It depicts the battle round the north gate at the Chateau Hougoumont, 18 June 1815. The figures are sculpted by Carl Reid and they are produced by Gordon Mitchell.
    The base is 30cm x 30 cm. There are coming 7 Coldstream Guards and 4 French Infantry.

    My special friend MOBO has modelled the gate with the doors and some additions for the base.
    I think it is a proces of several months to build and paint this amazing challenge.
    I hope you like the work and I hope you follow me in the next months.

    Mobo, thanks for the patient and the great work on the gate.
    Gordon, many thanks for the good service!

    Ben

    This is an epic piece and will take a a lot of commitment, fair play to you for taking it on as we all want to see Carl's excellent sculpt brought to life, the doors, walls and wee details are a fine example of where you are going with this project, so really looking forward to following the progress.

    You are doing exactly what I wish to do wish my sets. I just received my Frenchmen and I am trying to figure how best to address the gates. I will follow closely. Just wish I had a talented friend like your friend Mobo to help me along.
