Battles of Quatre Bras and Ligny--200th Anniversary

Hello everyone!

I couldn't let today go by without posting something on the blog, especially as today is the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Quatre Bras and the Battle of Ligny, fought by the Anglo-Dutch/Belgian allies and the Prussians, respectively, against Napoleon's French.

The 28th Foot at Quatre Bras
Both of these battles shaped the campaign which ultimately culminated in the Battle of Waterloo two days later. For more information on both battles, check out theses links to Wikipedia:

Coming soon: The Waterloo 200 post will be up on Thursday. Also, I received a new book on the Napoleonic Wars for my birthday, which I'll share. I also managed to finally get some Elmer's glue for my bases, so I'll get those knocked out at some point. Since I moved literally across the country, I've been kind of busy getting settled in, so not much painting has been going on. I plan to remedy that soon enough.
Thanks for looking!
