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.

Russian General with entourage
























The summer break after the annual battle with Anselm was beneficial, but not dormant. Russia got one of the fabulous Frontrank Officers on horse, who I modified into a General. He is accompanied by his own standard bearer (Trident) and footman (Irregular Miniatures). I changed the color of lapels and saddlebag into a light reseda, which is pure fiction, but gives them a particular recognition and matches well with the flag. That´s all.
