    I’m now starting to understand why you don’t see many SYW British armies around… These buggers take more than twice as long to paint as the French!

    The figures are Eureka 18mm and the flags are by Maverick Models.

    Beautifully done.  You can certainly tell an 18mm figure is painted extremely well when you can identify the Royal Welch Fusiliers from the insignia on the mitre!

    Thank you for sharing.

    Some more excellent SYW eye candy, I am with you on British SYW uniforms they take ages to paint.  So far I have only got around to completing two battalions, though a third is on the painting desk.

    Cheers chaps! 🙂

    You’ll note from Truls’ superb time-on-target posting that I bollocksed up the order of the grenadier companies in the line!  I just lined them up with the most senior on the right and the junior on the left and completely forgot that the British didn’t do it that way.  They alternated the companies by flank, so yes, the most senior was on the right (so far so good), but the second most senior would be on the left and they would then alternate on each side, with the most junior in the middle.  I only remembered when I was lining the battalions up for the photo… 🙁

    Fantastic work. As others noted, the work on the mitre caps is superb. Extra points for referencing “Over the Hills and Far Away”.

    Superb stuff, your 18mm mitres are better than my 28mm mitres!

    Nonsense!  You did yours with the Running Horse of Hanover.  I did mine with the Badly-Inflated Balloon Animal of Hanover…
