Prussian Red Hussars



















Not as promised, to paint faster the miniatures for the next time, is our today´s presentation of the Prussian Red Hussars, the HR 8. The miniatures are of Matthias Manske, out of his new range of Hussars and horses. Really great to paint and heavy in the weight!
They fall into a skirmish with Polish lancers here..



































A try with the Pano-function of my mobile....

and the Polish lancers, also Matthias Manske figures...

France: Regiment Champagne











Finished now the long silence on my blog for almost 3 months, dued to professional, daily work, which absorbed all the energy for painting miniatures.
Here I have my second regiment, coming out of the fabulous Trident manufacturers, the French of the FIW and SYW range, painted as the old regiment de Champagne. I agree, that the homogenous white coats, trousers and gaiters are a little bit boring to paint, but the typical cut of them are nice and also to make one of the oldest and traditional regiments of the French army.
Enjoy the pictures, I will let follow some more post in the near future.

General Montcalm and the Regiment Chartres






The French brigades got some reinforcements, now led by General Montcalm, a magnificent miniature of Trident. Even if Monsieur le General fought mostly in Northern America, I could´t resist to order him to place him on the peak of this beautiful Regiment of French Musketeers, also Trident.
I painted them as Chartres.


The figures are build of several parts to assemble - so you are free to change and turn heads.

Voilà les Suisses en service francais!














Today, the Swiss Regiments are ready for coming into French service . The picture above shows the French generals (Manske Zinnfiguren) with tambour and standards (Irregular Miniatures), the flags with the emblem of the Gardes Suisses. The Swiss will get higher score in our war-games dued to their braveness in Rossbach and elsewhere. So, it´s good to have 2 of them: The Suisse Castella and the Suisse Lochmann (Zurich region); both regiments are Sash&Saber miniatures.

Prussian Infantry Regiment 40 Alt-Kreytzen




I present you a short scenery of the Prussian Infantry Regiment No. 40, Alt-Kreytzen, in a burning village combat. The miniatures are - I could´t resist to order more and more - of the outstanding Trident in US. For the Regiment´s choice, I was inspired by Nigel Billingtons post (nigbilpainter.blogspot) about the identical regiment, and he had chosen a fantastic pink. I couldn´t imagine the luminosity of this fashion colour and did a research in several sources... But each  showed another pink tone. So, my chosen tone is more grey and decent - if that´s closer to the original or not, I don´t know. But, in a any case: Trident figures are always a great pleasure to paint.
Just enjoy the few shots I did today during a moment, while the clouds opened the sky for a - r.a.- 1 hour sunshine.
