A new troop of 40mm ECW to bolster my Parliamentarian Horse. I'm planning to take my time with these guys and try a bit more shading and highlighting. I have the figures now for 3 new horse units so I think I'll be doing a 2 squadron regiment after this is done. Something to keep Rupert's Horse at bay.
Taking it slow though after an intense holiday season. I'm also expecting any day now a batch of new RSMs to get my Grolstein infantry brigade underway. I'm using Hanoverian castings and probably going with orange-red coats...but trying to do something a little different to distinguish them from historical Hanoverians. I also ordered a few Eastern "exotics" ...i.e. mamlukes/pandours to add to the Duchess' host.
I also set up the scenario (in my last post) and giving it a run through with my 18th century stuff. a few pics shown here:
Colonel Gerlach leads from the front ...again! (his coat was holed in the early going...) he seems foolhardy in the extreme...those saving throws can only get you so far!
Mercenary grenz (die roten Teufel!) in the service of the Duchess hold the church yard in Schermissel.
