Saxon Regiment von Minckwitz

























Again a range of the fabulous Trident Miniatures which I couldn´t resist and had to paint them as Saxony´s infantry regiment von Minckwitz with their french blue lapels. The formation is advancing and gives, although they are regularly placed on rectangular vignettes, a dynamic effect.
Trident Miniatures take more time to paint, but at the end, all efforts are it worth.
One reason more to order a new package of figures to paint....

  5. Trident do make beautiful figures and you paint and photograph them beautifully as well.

    Are these from their Hessian range?

    1. Danke Mike, da freu ich mich sehr. Schade, warst Du heute nicht an der VFZ - wir haben viel über Details und Bemalung unserer 7-jähriger Krieg-Figuren diskutiert, mit Matthias und Martin Kremper.
      LG!!
