On the eve of the 199th Anniversary of the Battle of Waterloo, I continue to push to get all the painting done.... in a good way.....
While the OCD part of me made a list of the units needed in divisional organization and catagorized by battle...yeah, no comments please...I said, bugger that, and just pulled out units I thought would be fun to do. The 52nd was one of the units to engage the French Imperial Guard. They were a "Light" regiment so all wore the shoulder wings. [ I used spare Victrix highland arms on these Perry bodies. An advantage of plastics ]
The 52nd had buff coloured facings which, according to regulations but somewhat disputed by experts, had them wear natural colored leather belts as well. I like the look.
This unit was part of Adam's Brigade which also had a battalion of the 95th Rifles which I added a couple of figures.

|Adam's Brigade was under the command of the Prince of Orange (thus the P.O. on the command label.} I have tried not divided up the strange organizational chart of this army under Wellington but kept large groupings for player control.|
Almost finished the Dutch-Belgian portion of the Allied army.
