WSS / GNW Danes part VI

Finally managed to get around basing the latest 2 battalions to add to my Danish troops. The delay has been caused by refurbishing my Nephews Danish troops. His younger brother shook the box they were stored in like maracas. The damage was extensive, I've so far refurbished 4 battalions with 2 still to complete by amalgamating the unbroken figures. There are 2 full battalions worth of figures for the scrap heap.

So here are his refurbished figures. 3 battalions from the Prince George regiment and a single battalion from the Wurtemburg-Oels regiment.

So back to the 2 battalions of my own troops that I have completed. Both battalions are from the Droningin or Queens regiment. Quite distinctive in their red coats. The majority of the figures are from Dixons with a couple from Roundway and Warrior. The flags were sourced from the Internet.

I've now got 2 Artillery batteries on the painting table. I then need to decide if I start on the 2 Cuirassier regiments or push on and complete the remains 6 infantry battalions first.

Kids - and you're not allowed to shake them back. When we moved house the removal men insisted on turning all my box files with figures in them on their end to save space. I spent three months repairing the damage.

Nothing worse than having to repair figures
