The allied Army of the Netherlands was commanded by the Duke of Wellington during the Hundred Days campaign of 1815. In this polyglot force there were two Netherlands cavalry brigades – one of light, and one heavy brigade of Carabiniers. This consisted of one Belgian and two Dutch regiments, the Belgians looking splendid in their highly polished steel helmets and blue tunics. However, make no mistake, these were not just show soldiers. Commanded by General Trip van Zoudtlandt, they engaged the French many times on the day, with 40% of them having served in Napoleon's army until very recently.
Although we know that it is unlikely Dutch and Belgian troops would have carried colours at Waterloo, we have included a full-colour flag sheet as we know wargamers love to see their units literally flying the flag!
Box contains 12 mounted Warlord ResinTM figures, a flag sheet & plastic bases.
