I wasn't able to play a 54mm Waterloo game like I did last year, so I decided to pull out some recently acquired Napoleonic figures and set them up in a little diorama. I have been adding to my collection of Prussians, so that I can do Waterloo properly, and I have been reading up on the desperate battle of Plancenoit and so I figured I'd use that as subject for my set up. I made some tombstones out of balsa wood and used my church converted from a craft store bird house to represent the churchyard at Plancenoit. The scene is set for the last stand of the Old Guard around 8:00 PM. Thanks to Adobe PhotoShop, I was able to add the fiery sky and the appropriate tint.
