 My plan was to do some stand-in cavalry in hats while I'm waiting for Van Dyck to do cavalry. But knowing me, I would never repaint a unit I had already done just to get different hats. So instead the English/Scottish/Irish cavalry will have to wait. Instead, the Prussians got stuck with hats. First up is Margraf Phillip Horse/Cruiassiers. Figures are Pendraken LOA figures.

More 10mm WSS

 Finished Fergusons foot, I'm getting a bit tired of doing these, But we are doing a lot of work on the property and many days I don't have much time to do much. But doing these are quick, I can paint 13-14 in a few hours. So if I can get away for an hour to paint. I'll actually feel like I'm making progress. 

Ferguson's foot and Scots fusiliers together.

Rowe's Regiment of foot.

  First of 4 battalion's I'm working on for my WSS 10mm project. I hope one day to have all the English&scots/British regiments for the war. 

I found the uniform a little boring with red cuffs, the only facing colours is the vest.

                                                 But they look good, but will even better once they got 3, 7 or 14 of their                                                       buddies with them

Small Frenchies

 So I finally finished the Languedoc regiment for my 10mm WSS project. The first regiment of many I hope. The miniatures are the fantastic Van Dyck. I've finally gotten my hands on some of his allied figures. Enough I think to do 4 battalions. 

The first battalion has Maverick model flags, but some how I lost the flags for the 2nd battalion the year between paiting each battalion. So the 2nd battalion has just printed flag.

Each battalion of 41 strong for an 82 figure regiment, representing about 1000 men. or a ratio of 1:12.

I have a fake 3rd rank, consisting of  NCOs and drummers.

As I said they are fantastic figures, and the new allied ones are even better, the as one of the problems with the french figures is that the cross belt, particularly on the back would often be almost invisible. On these, the crossbelt is very clear and crisp in detail. No problem for the brush to pick it up.

Unit is done, a formation of Vikings, mailed upfront unarmoured in the back. Victrix miniatures with LBS transfers.
The second unit in the back is made of footsore metal.

Armand, Vicomte de Belzunce, on a cold foggy morning somewhere in Germany, looking for his regiment/brigade while thinking about how hard he is going to beat his manservant for being late with the hot coffee.

River crossing.

Finished a couple of squadrons of dragoons from the 1st dragoons. Since 12 10mm Dragoons aren't that interesting, especially since I wasn't that happy with how they turned out. I took out Kister's brigade for a river crossing. The actual river kinda didn't show up in the pictures, but it is there somewhere. 
I got 24 more dragoons, So the 1st dragoons will get all 4 squadrons. And another regiment will be half-finished for some time. 

Up next for my 10mm Napoleonic project is more infantry. With my latest order from Lancer, I'll be able to complete Friant's 2nd Division, with added cavalry support(quite a lot of cavalry support. (10 squadrons) And a nice 12pdr battery from the corps artillery park.
