28mm Napoleonic 1st Regiment Nassau & Bernhard of Saxe-Weimar & 6th Dutch Hussars

28mm Napoleonic 1st Nassau-Usingen Regiment Waterloo 1815.
The last two battalions of the Nassau contingent are finished; comprising 3x battalions of infantry (the first battalion finished august 2016), making up the 1st Nassau-Usingen Regiment This completes my Nassau contingent of the Allied army of 1815. I won't require the 2nd Nassau Regiment Because I'm trying to complete a group of small achievable armies which will form part of a larger Allied army.

So Onwards with my Dutch Belgian contingent and their command base Prince Bernhard of Saxe-Weimar together with a staff officer and infantry colonel.
Prince Bernhard of Saxe-Weimar commanded the second Brigade of the 2nd Dutch Division at the battles of Quatre Bras and Waterloo.1815

 Bernhard and chums are based on a 60mm diameter round mdf base.

The Dutch 6th Hussars 1815 present at the battle of Waterloo.
I've only acquired 1x squadron of Dutch Hussars so as not to overload my painting desk, I always paint little and often to avoid painters fatigue and keep my enthusiasm fresh.  

Any how,
I have 2x battalions of Dutch Militia half finished at the moment, then I need to acquire some Dutch-Belgian artillery, Belgian line infantry, Dutch line infantry and a squadron or two of Carabinier cavalry to complete my Dutch Belgian contingent, then onwards with the Brunswickers.
All the Best, Peter.
