When I started my Peninsular Project I had no real idea of what units I wanted to make so I ended up with a hodge podge of units, rather than a particular order of battle. However, saying that by random chance it seems I have lucked upon making three units of the Light Division – so I might as well continue and finish it. I already have a battalion of the 43rd Monmouthshire Light Infantry and a battalion of 95th RIfles almost completed, so the 52nd seemed a good choice. I painted these the last week I was in Wellington before I came home for Christmas. My muse was working overtime keeping me focused. Thank you my muse. You are so good for me.
This unit is entirely constructed using the new Front Rank reinforcement packs. I know that the Sergeant with pike and drummer are Centre Coy figures, but who cares I say. These Front Rank miniatures are the best that Alec has made in my opinion. I also got a set of the French Grenadiers in March Attack pose to round out a unit of Old Guard I have had sitting around – all I can say is WOW – they are really nice miniatures. The casting and detail is superb.
