Latest recruits

With the big Ayton weekend galloping towards us, I've been hurrying to base some figures I've recently finished painting. So let me introduce Sebastiani's battalion of converged Medetian Grenadiers, containing a company from each of the first 4 line regiments. This is a 30-strong unit of Huzzah Miniatures.


I've also added a unit of Wurttemberg Jager who are in the pay of Fleurie. These are Perry Hessian AWI figures which have lots of variety of pose. I bought a dozen on eBay which were made up of one pack of command and one of Jager. This meant I needed to convert one of the two figures carrying horns, as otherwise the unit would look more musical than martial! He's not hard to spot, but at least I managed to arm him and paint him as just one of the guys.



Next up will be some cavalry, but with the need for some pre-game secrecy I may not post pics of them for a couple of weeks. Can't let the despicable enemy (you know who you are) have too much information!

  1. Speaking as one of the 'despicable enemy', those are very nice. Especially the grenadiers, albeit a small unit... :)

  2. Very nice Dave! These look the part. I was tempted to paint up the OLD GLORY version of these but just didnt have the time so I'm using the Palestinian auxiliaries from 2012.
