Here We Go

Columns of infantry, cavalry and guns must move onto the field of glory before the clash of plastic can materialise. The hour approaches. Here are a few shots of the troops of both armies moving at the behest of their commanders and betters into the line.
Ah! the memories this invokes. The veteran Airfix move confidently along with the now seasoned and well rehearsed Esci/Italeri. Yet, the Hat Industrie, new and eager for a taste of action vie with the Zvezda for opportunities for glory. There are some though, odd, grizzled Warriors made of sterner metal of many a long year; elderly Minifig and occassional Hinton Hunt.
 HLI follow on the Highlanders to the famous cry of 'Airfix forever'
 An officers work is never done...an NCO has to do it for him.
 Infantry in skirmish order cover the wood as the Hussars go by
 Even the odd heavy squadron is mooching about the field
 Fusiliers, Rifles, Shire Regiments of Foot all fussed over by anxious leaders
 The beer is in...
 ...nibbles at the ready...
 Johnny Franciose across the way is here...
 'Hurry up, you'll be late'...
 Frogs can see the Roast Beefs in the distance...
 'Let them come, mon amis'
 Voltigures doing their speedy best...
 The 'Beau Filles' are on..
 ...the lights...
 ...and the 'Gross Freres'...
Not long now...
