Hi all

I painted a Dutch Belgian army for our 200th Waterloo anniversary game last year. They were a bit rough some I have tidied them up and photographed them for your viewing pleasure. The figures are all 6mm figures and are of course from Baccus.

As a proud Dutchman who yesterday finished his first DB units I'm jealous. Dutch line was hard to paint, the Militia was easier. Nice pics, good painting! Impressive!

Cracking job! Are they based for the Blucher ruleset?

Blücher is my favorite system. However, I prefer the more flexible DBx 40mm wide basing system, see my blog, already mentioned elsewhere in this forum. Depths: 15mm for line (4 strips), 20mm for skirmish, 30mm for cavalry & subcommanders, 40mm for artillery & CiC.

I experimented a bit since then. For Blücher I will buy or make sabot bases, 80x50. That's 2 or 4 line and 2 skirmish bases on 1 sabot/2 cav/2 art. 1 sabot per regiment. Good scenic effect, just as nice as one-piece basing. I can recommend it.
