British Regiments c.1704

OK, so after two years I've finally given in to having a section of the FORUM specifically set up to discuss painting techniques, display examples, show your latest projects and chat about this vital part of the hobby. Manufacturers please feel free to post up your sculpts, ask questions about what the gamers are after and generally promote your work.. no charge! Painters, please also feel free to post up your work for comment and critique. I can't promise the unreserved adulation characteristic of some other fora but I would hope you'd get constructive and measured comment!

Thanks for your encouragement, Ray.

Next up are Ferguson's and Marlbororugh's. I'm still aiming at two four-battalion brigades supported by a brigade of horse and another of dragoons by the end of May.

In the medium term I'm aiming for a four battalion Danish brigaded with a supporting brigade of horse, and two three-battalion Swedish brigades with two four squadron brigades of horse.

Then we'll see :D

The thistle design on the grenadier caps is speculative.

As promised the first of the horse:

Apologies, it's not the best photo.

I am to finish off my fourth battalion off this month, as well as a field gun, but first, some WotR factions for Donnybrook...
