Re: Into the hiatus come the Austrians

British light infantry in stovepipes also all had shoulder wings so would only be useful for Peninsular British flank companys. I personally would only go for more Peninsular sets if there is the intention to properly cover the other elements such as cavalry, artillery but also Portuguese & Spanish units. Preferably the later uniformed Portuguese/Spanish.
I agree about seeing some light troops made though. With the Revell set out of production, we only have the Italeri 95th rifles and they are quite big and not the best poses to select when there was only 3 of each in a box.

I agree the British line has almost nearly been aptly covered for 1815, apart from the firing line being a miss rather than a hit. I think a in square set should be made as this is sort of the definitive image of the British at Waterloo. Not to mention its awkward and costly trying make squares out of what is currently on sale.
Besides, we have now had 2 sets of highlanders in square when there was only 3 kilted battalions present.
Get a set of Belgic shako British Line made in square as well and then I agree, not much left to be done for that group of infantry.....apart from a firing line remake which is highly unlikely.
