What a Fantasic Surprise!

I had a look yesterday at some of the plastic companies to see if there is any news on any new set of figures for the 200th anniversary of Waterloo and guess what? Italeri are proposing a special series dedicated to Waterloo with an Anniversary Box in April.
But even better is that they are going to celebrate Waterloo 1815-2015 with this box set number 6111 containing a part reproduction of the famous farm, “La Haye Saint” in MDF form in 1/72 scale. The first set will be containing the farm house, wall and gate and for the first time we will see the gardener’s cottage which Airfix left off their farm house. It will also contain 4 boxes of figures. Set 6066 French Infantry, 6031 Imperial Guard Artillery, 6095 British Infantry and 6083 British 95th Regiment.

The next set is number 6175 and that will be the barn and again four sets of figures which are not known at this time. 
 
 
 
Set number 6176 will be the stables and another four sets of figures.
 
 
 
This is fantastic news but there is no price set as of yet and I just can not wait to see these. This set/kit is a lot better than the old Airfix plastic farm house but it has been with us for a hell of a long time now, so this is quite exciting news from Italeri. The farm house will be easy to assemble and to paint. It’s been a long time since Italeri brought out any Waterloo figures as the last set was number 6136 Scots Infantry in 2010. We hope that there are more surprises out there for us Waterloo fans.
