First Units Arrive

Five weeks since the bare metal arrived, the first units are ready to parade.



The first picture shows the two battalions of the Von Schmetterling Infantry Regiment alongside the Markgraf Hussen/Von Schmetterling Grenadiers, a 3pdr gun detachment and General Hermann von Kruger, commander of the Second Brigade.





The other shows the Klinkerhoffen Dragoons and the Franzotzich Jaegers.


The figures are the rather large '15mm' sold by Lancashire Games.


Rumour has it that the perfidious Swedes have landed and are marching south towards the Duchy and contact is expected very soon. Thus more of the Grand Ducal army has been mobilised, and a detachment of Prussians are marching to assist the Duchy as well. Despite this not being the ideal season for campaigning, a battle is expected soon.


In Service to the Duke

Personally I like colorful units (my Saxe-Bearstein foot wears red coats for the most part).

Thanks guts.

I also like colourful units. The period is replete with them and if I'm going to ally with the Prussians and fight against Swedes I think some units painted other than mid-dark blue is an absloute must !

Excellent, nice colors! I never guessed they were 15mm until you said so. Excellent entry into 18th century ImagiNations!
