Now we don't want to put any pressure on our friends in Holland, but half the Napoleonic world has been begging The Napoleonic Guide for more information on Hille, Barry and Jordy's Waterloo diorama project.

Fortunately we managed to get a despatch rider through the lines and he has reported back the following details.

According to Hille, the project is still going strong (sigh of relief around the world) and the completion date is now March. It has been delayed again, but our reporter says that's because the guys are having fun - too much probably - working on it.

The guys have just completed "a nice piece of La Belle Alliance," according to Hille.

"Wait till you see the Scottish Guards Jordy was working on. These blokes are really holding on, some taking cover from some incoming French rounds behind a dead cow.

"We have increased our number of French line infantry (Les Bleus). To give our project a little Dutch accent, Barry and I finally finished our boxes of Dutch lancers.

"We required the right regimental flags and colours from one of your internetlinks (hooray for us - ED). Thanks for that help. In fact, your website gave us all the info we wanted."

Now in the weeks ahead Hille and his lads are going to be working on Blucher's army, some (three boxes) French cuirassiers, British artillery, another British light cavalry, six pieces of French artillery, Wellington's staff, the Young Guard, a set of cattle and lifestock, as well as scenery and buildings.

Just a reminder to those who are new to this venture. Hille, Barry and Jordy are building a diorama of the battle of Waterloo that is 3.5 metres by 2.5 metres and is likely to have 1200 1/72 scale figures complete with buildings and terrain.
