Chartrand's Young Guard

As life has settled down, I have been able to tackle more 6mm Imperial Guard, these next brigade being Chartrand's 1st Brigade of the Young Guard. This was formed of the 1er and 2e Bataillons, 1er Régiment de Tirailleurs and 1er and 2e Bataillons, 1er Régiment de Voltigeurs.

This unit spent the Battle of Waterloo sitting on their packs waiting to be committed to the fight. However, this didn't happen until late in the day when the Young Guard were dispatched to aid in the fight against arriving Prussian forces in Plancenoit.

During this engagement the fighting was so fierce that the YG division suffered around 80% casualties. The end of the Empire was inevitable.

I have based these units in column and they are the Elite French Infantry from Baccus.

There is another unit of Young Guard to complete and then I have the Guard Cavalry to complete to finish the full Corps. 

But that is for the future, so thanks for reading!

More Citizens For Mega-City One

I return to this blog as a married man, the wedding is over, the honeymoon is finished and I am back with brush in hand. The first figures I have completed recently are four Mega-City One citizens whom I bought in Warlord's Judge Dredd sale. 

The first guy reminds me a bit of a creature from a Hieronymus Bosch painting. I'm not sure why, maybe it's the medieval style shoes and the weird helmet he's wearing.

Next up is this delivery guy, it is a harmless package or a consignment of illegal Umpty Candy?

Here's a woman stepping out in the latest Mega City fashion, horned helmets paired with green hair are all the rage in 2139!

And finally a perp who has become unstuck and handcuffed to a holding post.

As I mentioned, we had our wedding and as part of it there was a cake baking competition open to our friends and families. I tried to take pictures of as many as I could, but I was  a bit drunk... But here they all are, can you tell which one won the competition?

Thanks for reading!
