|The battalion in close column, officers to the front. Roy's right, they do look a bit like flapping seagulls!|
|Deployed in line and ready to advance.|
|Extended order - this new fangled formation is frowned upon by the senior NCO's.|
|A half battalion - some scenarios will call for smaller British units.|
|The sergeant major on the right is sensibly carrying a rifle to make himself a less conspicuous target. The officers however may not last long once the mausers start firing.|
I’m really pleased to have finished one British unit and hope to start on the next one soon. In the meantime I need to return to the Napoleonic figures on my painting desk who are feeling a little bit neglected.
