Two Units for the Ducal Contingent.

Several months ago, I recorded that I had completed my Seven Years War armies, and had decided that enough was enough. Then you realise, there is never enough. That there is always one more regiment that deserves painting, either because of its exploits, good or bad, or may be because it was just too pretty to ignore. Well I have tried to at least cut back on my SYW project,but somehow it just keeps on developing. Hence these two units painted for my imaginary! ducal army. The country I feel always tended towards the east of Europe and had a Russian/ German influence. The first unit completed is a repainted Hinchliffe unit, resplendent in pink facings. The colour is a favourite one of the dukes dwarfish companion. The flag is of course a Hesse based flag, with a little bit of tinkering.

 The second unit is the dukes White Regiment of Cossack neer do wells. In an effort to keep up with their neighbours, the dukedom has recruited a frei korps made up of redundant cossacks.
 In accordance with their background, they were allowed a Russian based standard, and allowed to continue in their blasphemous greek religion. Any excuse to add to my burgeoning Seven Years War units.

RSM Figures for sale.

In an effort to down size my SYW metal mountain, I think its time to sell some of my RSM bags.
I have the following bags to sell.

 2 Russian Horse Grenadiers.
 1 Ottoman Turks Cavalry.
 2 Cossack cavalry,
  I British Heavy Cavalry.
 4 Hanoverian Cavalry.
 1  Von Kleist Cavalry.
 1 Austrian Hussars. [Colpacks.]
 1 French Hussars. [Miltron]

I also have 2 Prussian Infantry bags,
4 Hanoverian Infantry bags,
 1 Hanoverian Grenadier bag,
 1 Hanoverian jager bag,
 1 Janissary infantry bag.

 The cavalry contain 12 figures, the infantry 36 figures.
The cavalry retail at $ 26.00 and the infantry at $29.00.
This equates to £16.79p  and 18.73p respectively.That is without the air postage and the usual risk of HMRC hitting you for another fee, usually of £9.00 for opening up the box.
Ideally I would like £14.00 for the cavalry and £16.00 for the infantry, which taking into the account of air postage etc, seems a fair deal.
 Postage would be extra, but I would attempt to find the best value way to send them.

 Thats what the infantry look like. If no one is one interested by Sunday of this week, I will put them on E bay.

Enough is enough.

Now this sounds like another rant, but honestly its not.
I have reluctantly realised that I have too much stuff, and in order to get more stuff, I need to get rid of something.
 The something, starts with some of my war game magazine collections, that is Miniature War games and War games illustrated.
 So if anyone would like several years worth for the cost of the postage,please feel free to contact me.
 Additionally, I have realised that I have no need to enlarge my Seven Years War armies any further.
 As a consequence I am going to sell some of my regiments of unpainted RSM figures.
 Again if anyone is interested before I put the figures on Ebay,then drop me a line.
 There are several bags of French, Austrian, Hanoverian  and Prussian,with some cavalry as well.
 It would save the buyer having to run the gauntlet of HMRC.
