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.

    1. Im not certain how to use them however, and whether they should be rated as militia, or poorly trained.

  8. PS: what about a detailed parade of the Ducal Army as it stands now? A fine bunch of gorgeous units, it would be great to see all of them together.
