Like giving birth to an elephant!

This unit has been a longtime in the painting. I originally bought this unit from the author Iain Gale at least a couple of years ago. The unit was painted but was too small for my normal regiments, so after buying some extra figures, it just sat in a box gathering dust.
 Anyway after some cogitating I decided to paint it up and complete the unit. The trouble was I ended up virtually repainting the figures to fit in with the rest of my army. I have finally completed it and for some reason it proved a difficult set of figures to paint. I'm not certain why, as normally I enjoy painting Willie figures.
 I hope to take this unit along to Partizan 2015 in May with my small contingent of troops for the AMG game. I did cheat a bit I'm afraid as it doesn't contain the customary 36 figures. I later realised that I also have a half painted Minden Miniatures regiment that I have painted in the same facings, sat in a box somewhere. I cant decide what Im going to do about that though.

    1. Thanks very much, it was a strange unit to paint though.

  2. Agreed! Just like those Irish troops on the rear cover (I think?) of the original Charge!

    Best Regards,

  5. Rob, yes, looking very good indeed and way beyond my meagre abilities. Oh, and my Prussians are looking forward to having them in their sights at AMG15! Cheers Colin

  6. Robbie,

    Splendid looking unit. Always think the Willie figures really capture the period.

  8. Robbie,

    Still think they are lovely but realised they are the enemy! For some reason I thought they were Hanoverian! Sorry put it down to an age problem!

    My Prussian Army will not make the same mistake at AMG15.

    1. The thing is John, Im not certain what Graham wants me to bring, because I have a small contingent of Hanoverian's that would hopefully fit in okay.
      Thanks Robbie.

    1. I have always wanted the four Irish regiments, but I dont think the bank would approve.
      Best of luck, Robbie.
