It's a nice start! However it looks somewhat plain and simple right now--part of it is the dark and blurry pictures, but also I think a black wall on a baseplate isn't very interesting visually. I believe the Coldstream Guard is famous for it's defense of the Hougomont farmhouse: this reminded me of a great Bayonets at Dawn entry,  DanMov's Battle of La Haye Sainte, from which you might be able to draw some inspiration on how to vary the structure so it's not 'simply' a wall. Just some suggestions. :classic:

For more pictures you should upload them to a site like Flickr, Brickshelf, or MOCpages and deeplink them by copy/pasting the image address, using this  Posted Image  above. Here is a link to EB's PIC and POST Tutorials   Posted Image

I'm interested to see how this turns out. I see someone else is hoarding CMF Bearskins.   :pir-classic:

One thing: you should change your Napoleon and Wellington heads, as neither of them had facial hair at any time.

EB does not provide any more storage space because we do not want to get into the image hosting business.

The above options are all good ones.
