Waterloo Stamps

Today is the 200th anniversary of  the Battle of Waterloo, fought on June 18, 1815. I suspect most, if not all, hobbyists will know a good deal about it already. If you are a UK citizen then you may already know that Royal Mail have released two sets of commemorative stamps, which feature some lovely artwork. For the benefit of non-stamp nerds and overseas visitors to the blog, I thought it was worth showing that artwork here. I can understand why so many people fall under the spell of collecting and gaming this era.

Some very nice stamps. Good thing that the napoleonic games need so many models. That keeps me from falling :)
