The ducal artillery and train,for the game that never was..

Following on from the last posting,I thought Id post photographs,of part of the ducal artillery and wagon train,again just to gee myself up. I had some spare! RSM figures so I cobbled together these gunners resplendent in their green and yellow.
 the wagons I picked up on e bay and are Hinchliffe,which I still think is a terrific range.The grenadier,was a sample sent by Warrior Miniatures,and is a fine figure and at a cheap price,even now.
Anyway back to my Hanoverians.

    Not full time, please! We want more of the Duchy.

  2. A rich train to complement a gorgeous contingent!

    Please don't be put off / disheartened by the non-participation to the game. Your troops deserve to 'live' for their own - and be expanded, given regimental profiles and traditions, a country, a Duke to serve, a pretty Duchess...

  4. Nowadays, with all the documentation available -in printed form and on the web- everybody and his brother can do Hanoverians, or Austrians, or whatever historical army. But only YOU can do and paint units from *your* Duchy.
    The 'Field Commander' vignette provides the uniforms of the Ducal Gardes du Corps or Gendarmes (in purple) and Horse Grenadiers.

    Imaginary units are like endemic biological species living in a very restricted area -here, the brain, notes, hard drive... shelves once painted of their creator. While historical units are like ubiquitous biological species, encountered everywhere, thriving and more than a little invasive.
    Don't abandon your brainchild! You may be disheartened for the time being, but I believe English has a set phrase "to throw the baby out with the bath water".

    Cheers!
