La Haye Sainte positioned at the foot of a rolling escarpment, protected the Duke of Wellington’s centre at the Battle of Waterloo on the 18th June 1815.
This vital walled farmhouse compound was defended by some 400 British and German troops who crucially held out against the vast numbers of French till the late afternoon.
The hopelessly outnumbered men fought till they expended their last bullet then retreated as Marshal Ney, heavily supported by artillery, led a furious assault with the 13th Legere and a company of engineers. The French finally able to take the position, but ultimately it was too late in the day.
The defence of the farm denied Napoleon this valuable strategic position and allowed Blücher and the Prussian army time to arrive and lend vital assistance to Wellington.

This pack is just one of our range of building kits suitable for 20mm wargaming and for dioramas. The buildings come flat packed and can be assembled and ready for use in no time at all. They are made of laser cut 2mm and 3mm MDF which has been been textured with floorboards / planking and tiles
where appropriate. The MDF wood is unpainted. The roofs are removeable to allow you to place models inside the buildings.
We suggest that you use PVA glue to permanently fix the building together. Painting is optional, we think that a quick wash of ink will be enough for most gamers but of course, you can add more detail if you prefer.
If you need glue for your models, I sell Revell Contacta Adhesive, Revell Professional polystyrene glue and a range of super glues and other adhesives. They can be found in the ‘Arcane scenery’ and ‘Glues, Fillers, Paints and Tools’ categories of my shop.
