Early British Infantry Battalion

This battalion is from the five figure Infantry of the Line 1801-11/Peninsular War Range. In an ideal world these would provide all my British Line figures, rather than Belgic shakoed types.

The battalion comprises BN 174 charging figures with a BN 171 charging officer. And I must do something about that Airfix horse.

In the background are a couple of AL 2 British limbers with pairs of H1 Nearside and H2 offside draught horses. Because I am short of horses I base limbers with a pair of horses, then have "floating" bases of 2 and 4 horses to complete teams when moving.
