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.

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.

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.

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.
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.
