My first unit for “Waterloo” is finished, the 3rd Battalion of the 1st Line Regiment. I started with the 3rd Battalion because I have some regimental figures from Perry Miniatures for the 1st Battalion that I need to order. About 1/5 of the miniatures here were used before for 28mm Lasalle, and have been rebased.
This is the battalion with the maximum amount of companies. The French get 1 command company stand plus up to 5 additional company stands in a regiment, a stand being made up of 6 figures. Though in “Waterloo” a “company” is simply a game organization, it matches up well to the number of companies in an actual French battalion, 6, if some 1st company figures are mixed into the command stand.
