Not dead,

Neither am I an ex Gunfreak, I have not ceased to be etc.

We're redoing our kitchen(our kitchen from 1956 so a lot of work)  So after almost two months, we're now simply waiting for the electrician, and can't do much more before that.

But you're not here for kitchen updates, you're here for miniatures. And I have something for you.

I dug out a half-finished Hanoverian battalion, I started on this a long time ago, in a galaxy.....
I ordered the flags for the battalion almost 2 years ago, so I probably started on it about two years ago. I did the first 12 and it stopped, I've finally finished the last 12, it's, of course, a pain in the ass to restart a unit after almost two years. I realized I used a different musket color on the first 12, and I have no idea what color I used for the natural leather. But I think the most important stuff like the red and yellow is the same.

So I present to you Oberg/Chevallerie battalion:



 The Hanoverians are a colorful bunch.
The Figures are of course Minden, and flags are of course Maverick. I think the old and new match quite well. Last time His Britannic Majesty's Army got reinforcements was back in April 2017, so it was about time. But soon the French will get some reinforcements too. Luckily the 12th foot will follow the French.

The Force so far, 2 battalions, 3 units of cavalry, a medium and a heavy gun.




I did a counting, all my SYW forces,(French, Prussian, Austrian, British, Hanoverian, and Hessian,) Now total 298.
