Wellington's allied army was an eclectic mix of nationalities and troop types. None looked more exotic than the three Highlander regiments at the Battle of Waterloo.
The contents of this plastic set allow you to field all three Highland units - the 42nd "Black Watch", the 79th Cameron Highlanders and the 92nd Gordon Highlanders. The Highland units had gained a reputation for hard fighting in the Peninsula campaign and fought well at Quatre Bras and Waterloo the following day. They are each commanded by a smartly dressed brigade commander on horseback.
No British Army is complete without the magnificent Rifle Brigade! Three battalions of the 95th fought at Waterloo in their dark green uniforms. Their efficiency with the Baker rifle was well known to the French, who really didn't want to face them! The vast majority of the three units fought in line and square at Waterloo, with some known to have been deployed in battle order in the sand quarry adjacent to La Haye Sainte. These figures can also be painted to represent the brave German defenders of this vital farmhouse. Finally, we have three 5.5-inch howitzers in support of the Royal Artillery, dropping shell after shell high over the heads of their troops and onto the French lines.
This plastic set provides enough models to field a complete brigade of three Highlander Infantry regiments, each containing 80 men, 24 combat-ready 95th Rifles, a 3-gun 5.5" Royal Artillery Howitzer battery and three Highlander mounted Brigade Commanders.
