I started mentioning my passion for this subject in the other section of Shore leave, but I have decided to start a build thread for it in preperation for when I start it. When I was a kid I collected hundreads of the Airfix 1/72 soldiers but I did not have the skill or patience to paint them - so they stayed partialy or un painted and I just cluttered the living room carpet full of them while I played. This has ignited my desire to have a go but in the larger scale of 1/56 or 28mm, I am going to create a diorama of the defence and attack of the famous/infamous farm centered in the middle of the field of the battle. I will aim to gat a kit of the farm but due to room I will cut back the rear section, and focus on whats happening along the front facing wall and entrance. During the battle a cavalry charge occured right in front of the farm by the French Heavy Cavalry (Cuirassier) and at the same time continious attacks were made on the farm by different French troops from a few different French units, the farm was protected by about 400 KGL (German) troops from a couple of units, aswel as the Brittish 95th (Sharpe) unit just outside the farm. I have a few things to sort out before I can purchase things to start this (how long it will take to finish "who knows") I have however picked up for a couple of quid £3) a starter sprue with Five french troop fiigures from the Perry range - this will be a starter test for me to see how they look/go together. Just a couple of pics - one showing how I will construct the farm taken from the full kit, a pic of the sprue I have brought and a few internet pics. Hope this will be of interest to follow I am looking forward to starting it. OC.
