DBN Dutch Belgium Army 1815

The mighty Dutch Belgium Army of 1815 led by the fearless Prince of Orange!  A mixture of numerous figure manufacturers.  Enough troops to make up 11 'big base' elements  (4 normal bases to 1 DBN element).  The vast majority of theses troops will be classed as 'Militia' in DBN.

Light Troops

Nassau Troops

A lot of these were left over AB Minis

The Mighty Prince of Orange (AB Minis)

Dutch Regular & Militia Troops

Dutch Horse Artillery

Dutch Foot Artillery

Dutch Light Cavalry

Heavy Cavalry (Lancashire Games)

The full army deployed to repel any invader..

Hi- certainly a great set of troops for the Dutch-Belgium Army - great painting and basing. You certainly have taken excellent photos of the Armies- well done indeed. Regards. KEV.

Very nice job!

Like almost everyone else, I used to disparage the DB army, considering it to be composed of largely unenthusiastic conscripts and wanna-be French allies. My opinion has changed, thanks to vol. 1 (Quatre Bras) of the Osprey series on the Waterloo Campaign. The author (John Franklin) has been much more charitable to the DB contribution, and has sought to rehabilitate the reputation of their commander, Prince Willem. His arguments (and evidence) are compelling. Definitely worth a look; a lot of food for thought there!

Best regards,

Chris Johnson

Cheers Chris

I'm looking forward to leading the Dutch Belgium Army out against the French, with the Prince of Orange in the thick of the action.
