I'm glad to say it's now time for me to post some of my finshed battalions. Of the 11 foot battalions I am working on I have now managed to complete 5 in total and the latest 4 are in the yellow facings of Silesia.
So the 10th Prussian/1st Silesian regiment is now ready to take the fight to the Corsican ogre!!! (although I still need to paint up 6 volunteer jager).
The line battalion figures are in the most part figures I bought from Darren with a good number of extras added in, they still took a lot of painting to turn them into my own style to fit in with my collection and I'm really happy how they turned out.
The landwehr are the 1st battalion of a Silesian landwehr unit of 4 battalions and are all painted from scratch using the army painter method then highlighted. I do prefer the tines the AP gives the uniforms compared to the highlights on black I used before.
I picked up some GMB flags for my Prussians a couple of months back and most of them look really smart (their landwehr flags are really nice).
I cut off the old flag pole and drilled out the hands then used a paper clip as a new flag pole for strength (had to re-make the bottom hand as it came off). I'm pleased how the mounted officer came out as I thought I had added a little to much whiskers however he is a landwehr officer so he fits fine. The cool thing is that he is unique to me as he is a conversion from a line lancer officer.
I'm pretty chuffed to get these guys finished off as I've had them lying around for a good while now. Every now and again I got them out to look at and wondered when I would get round to doing them so it's a nice feeling to see them based up and magnetised.
I think the AB Prussian landwehr are some of Mr Barton's nicest figures as there are so many poses.
So with these guys finished I have had to start a new storage box. It's kind of a marker point for us when we have enough troops ready to line another A4 storage box. Maybe I'll have a couple of beers in celebration?
Anyways I hope you like them!
