Hanoverian Infantry Regiments for the WSS

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!

Hanoverian Infantry Regiments for the WSS

Post by Churchill » Sat Jan 17, 2015 8:23 pm

Hi Guy's,

For those interested in the WSS period, here are the beginnings of the Hanoverian Brigade @ Blenheim in 1704.
New painter Mr.Dave Livesey has sent me a photo of the first test figure of the regiment du Luc.
The regiment is listed as having white coats with green facing's at Blenheim, but using some artistic license and the fact that all the other regiments of the brigade had scarlet red coats I've asked for these to have scarlet red coats as well.
They were to receive their new coats in 1706 anyway so only 2 years out!!!

More photo's will follow...

A bit shiny, but I put that down to the light Dave is using to take the photo's.
He tell's me he should be finished by the end of next week.

Cheers,

Ray.

Hi Jambo1,

Thank you for your comment, well as promised my painter Dave has finished the Hanoverian de Luc Regiment.
The figures are all Front Rank miniatures and the flag's were specially made for me by Stuart of Maverick Model's.

Hi Ray,

Thank you for your comment, the painting and basing is down to Dave Livesey, who is doing a fantastic job for me.
This will be the last infantry brigade on the go now five regiments so that's one down and four to go.
Then it's a brigade of dismounted dragoon's to go with the mounted one's I already have and finally finishing off with a huge command base I have planned.
That will be the entire Allied left flank at the battle of Blenheim, twenty regiment's of Infantry, ten squadron's of Horse, eight squadron's of Dragoon's and one battery of Artillery.

I will get this project finished!!! :wink:

Ray.
