Valiant Miniature Kit# 9809 - Dutch Horse Artillery, Waterloo, 1815. While it is true that the best troops in Wellington's Waterloo army were his British Regulars, a substantial part of his force was made up of Dutch, Belgians, and Germans. Some of the Dutch troops were inexperienced and of dubious value, but for every battalion that turned and ran there were several others who stood their ground well, in some cases taking heavy casualties to do so. The Artillery Batteries generally numbered among the latter, and several occupied critical positions in Wellington's line.
