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.
