delPrado Napoleonic Figures presented by Beano Boy


All models shown are from the weekly Magazine," Relive Waterloo",
and were first produced in the year 2001.


                                 The figures above were in the first addition of that magazine
                                  which i bought back in the day. So these were the only ones
                                 that i had until recently this year.




                          This year I was able to buy some more ,and all sealed in small packages

Below the New Collection Begins

                                                         French   Cuirassiers & Carabiniers



Those new ones above were my first Lot bought. 
Those ones below another Job Lot bought.

                     They never actually carried the Eagle Standard,but these are toys so who really cares?
                     Those above are the end of the Second Lot! The glass display cabinet is filling up.

                                                More arrived a few days later

                                                                                 (4)


A very brave but rather foolish British Hussar takes the fight to the French,but glancing behind he realises  that rest of the squadron had decided not to follow  suit. A very quick about turn,but now the French are on his tail.___________________ "HELP!"

A Trickle of Infantry Arrive,and British Hussars

                                              Eventually all  Guns were complete.

                                      French Dutch Lancers and Prussion Cavalry


                                                              A Few of the Packages



                                                                     



                                                                           The Charge
                                               
                                                   Troops Mixing it on my tiny Work Table




                   Although not painted to an Artists High Standard,I`m still very glad I was able to include                    these into my Collection. The Great Thing is I didn`t have to paint them.  BB

  1. Thanks Phil. I know war-gamer`s are now buying these which has ment that their value has rocketed sky high. You could say its quite another war-game of bidding they have to do in order to win. I bought all mine months ago, well before the Waterloo Date.BB
