British-Hanoverian Artillery

I love the versatility and malleability of plastic figures. Here is what can you achieve with spare parts and a minimum amount of buying I’ve had some spare artillery hands from Victrix  British artillery box and some spare British bodies from the Perry’s box. With 9 pdr guns from Front Rank here is the result Comment are always welcome

Hanoverian Landwehr part 2

This is the second Unit of Landwehr men from the Kingdom of Hannover using peaked cap heads from the Perry’s  Prussian Jaeger sprue. This time I’ve decided to make the cap cords on the Stovepipe Shakos with epoxy putty instead of copper wire like my first unit . I was planing to order a whole bunch of flags either from GMB or Flags of war, but the crisis caught up with us before that.  I’m opting for painting them freehand. Have a nice week friends Andreas

Hanoverian Landwehr 1815

Despite excruciating back pains I’ve managed to finish the first Hanoverian unit for my friend Andreas (pure coincidence), who makes the “Allied” forces in the Anglo-Allied army for next year’s Quatre Bras batlle.

The minor conversions were done by him, e.g. the cords on the stovepipe shako, while the peaked cap heads are from the Perry’s plastic Prussian Jagers

The red was painted with my usual Vallejo triad of 926 Red, 908 Carmine and 847 Scarlet with a fourth layer of 910 Orange Red for the officer and Standard bearers

The Greys, Blacks and flesh were painted with my new love, DecoArt Americana Acrylics

I’ve left the flagpoles empty ,while I’m planing a GMB order
