WSS / GNW Danes VII

Despite it being the school half term and having a weeks break from work, I've made slow progress. I did finish the refurbishment of the last 2 battalions for my nephew. For my own collection I knuckled down and completed the 2 batteries of Artillery as well as a couple of officers.


The figures for both batteries are from Warrior Miniatures.  You cannot beat them for value with 4 guns costing only £2.50. I was struggling to find info on the carriage colours and had to rely on the TMP forum. I do quite like the red and gold colours.

The 2 command bases represent a Brigadier and a more senior line commander. The 2 officers are from Bluemoon and the drummer is a left over figure from Roundway. I do have a couple of packs from Roundway for extra commanders. Should be enough for an Army general, line commander and 3 more Brigadiers.


On the painting table I decided to concentrate on completing the Danish infantry. I've 3 more battalions prepped, the 3rd battalion of the Droningin regiment and 2 battalions from the Prince Christian regiment. With these and the 3 battalions of the Jydske regiment to paint should complete the Danish infantry.

very nice. Always liked the violet for the Danish artillery uniforms - most unusual.
