Saxon Regiment Graf Brühl

Here is my end-of-summer regiment, made completely of the fabulous Trident miniatures in US. Originally they are of the AWI Hessians range, but here you see them as Saxons in the SYW. It is the infantry regiment "Graf Brühl", a reinforcement to the brave Saxon army - in preparing the next summer battle, which will be a 1745 Kesselsdorf scenario against the Prussian invaders...

The officer detected the hidden camera, it seems...

    1. Jim, thank you for the compliment! The flags are self-done in Photoshop and just printed on rough paper.

    1. Oh, this is one of the advantages of 40mm scale - the figures are well proportioned and look more realistic. Thank you so much for your kind comment!

    1. Thank you, Peter! Flags for 40mm figures are not available at all, so I build them by myself - that´s all..
