More additions to the Seven Year War project, two Reichsarmee units and two Hanovarian units for the Allied Pragmatic Army.
As with the previous Russians I have manged to find and print up some free flags off the Interweb!
Two Reichsarmee and Two Hanovarian Units
Hanovarian 11B de le Chevallerie
Hanoverian Combined Grenadiers. Hanoverian foot regiments had only a small company of grenadiers each. So this combined regiment is made up of four separate detachments from regiments 3A Knesdenberg, 6A Hardenberg, 10A Post and 13A Halberstadt.
Reichsarmee combined grenadiers from Kurmainz and Mainz Krisregiments.
I'm really liking the unit figure size of the Imputvs/To The Strongest bases. I painted 24 skirmish figures, Greek bow and slingers, that is 6 bases. These troops were mainly used as escorts for the elephants employed by both armies.
Talking of elephants, there are 17 elephants bases used in the battle, that's a lot of Nellies!
As usual these are Xyston miniatures and are just great.
As a follow on to the big re-basing project of the previous post I am away with work (
where I do most of my painting) and I happen to have a few Macedonian/Greeks/Persians by Xyston. So I decided to paint up another pike phalanx.
The unit is 32 figures painted to represent a 'Silver Shields' elite phalanx. Also I have a changed my painting style for my Macedonians by using my, now standard, block paint and Army Painter Dark Tone dip, applied with a brush of course.
These figures will be based on the new To The Strongest bases of my previous post.
I blame this diversion on Simon Miller of To The Strongest fame and his fantastic blog full of painted minis at his Big Red Bat blog,
