The raising of the Saxon Army 1699-1712

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!

Yes, Clarence did his job pretty good. The flags are colored after Valejo Color Codes so the color of the uniform cuffs matching exactly with the flags :D

I love the three colours, very evocative of the period.

Thanks for the kind comments

Gunter,
I think the Ooooh's and Aaaah's are in order. Great looking command!

I just finished up a slew of Polish-Lithuanian cavalry(more winged Hussars, Pancerni and Tartars), that would compliment your Saxon force.

Looking forward to following your progress.
