Well it's nice when a project starts to get unde rway proper, I finished Miltitz it was a pain to do, I was one of the special units where I got half as a wedding present. but it all fucked up. First I couldn't find my horse tone grey which is my go to shade when doing white, so I had to find another way to get close to the white I did on the first 4 figures I painted months ago. But it got worse I suddenly realised I used the wrong green! the green ended up being to light. So very uninspired and took a long time to finish, in the end it look okish.
I then started work in my Hanoverian heavy battery. The Allies need 6 heavy batteries.
The problem here was the blue on the gunners, apparently, they have light blue, but not sky blue.
Medium and light blue are hard colors. I have plenty of various dark blues. and I got 2 triads for sky/bavarian blue. But finding a mid or light blue is hard. In the end, I'm semi-happy with the result. The mid colour and highlight were too close. and doesn't show up very well
And while I'm quite happy with the brick red carriage, the tube isn't very well painted.
And now comes the good stuff. I have no finished the first division in my Minden project, only 15 more divisions left. Oh, and of course it's the smallest in the entire OOB by a good margin.
A single Hanoverian infantry brigade and a single British light battery.
Anhalt +1 Painted in his regimental uniform.
I must say, 7YW British artillerists must have some of the most awesome uniforms ever!
Dark blue, red facings and lots of yellow lace. The blue is British Royal blue triad from foundry, with a second highlight of Foundry Union blue C.
So That's what I got to show you today. But one last thing. I'm trying to sell some Perry Napoleonic Russians I've painted. I've tried to sell them several times now, Both as single units and as a package deal. So take a look at my ebay
The price is £100 pr unit, the total is £330 I did this because shipping would be well over £30 PER hussar unit and £27 for the infantry. So by selling all three togeather for £330 the shipping will be £10 pr unit. This will not cover the shipping, but will help a little.
