    That’s going to look impressive. There isn’t a cavalry or dragoon regiment with similar colours?

    I have just noticed the flags are missing a centre crown, looked at the wrong picture.ย  I will rero fit at a later date.

    I think there is Jim, I can’t think of its name at the moment.

    I never noticed the flag, but a cavalry unit in those colours would be a delight for the eyes ๐Ÿ™‚

    Finished these today,ย 24th foot British infantry SYW / AWI using Revel AWI 20mm plastic.
    Fairly generic more AWI than SYW, the 8 figures with the double crossbelts were bought a couple of years ago pre-painted just touched up.
    Flags by me.

    Beautifully proportioned figures and lovely painting.

    Did you hand paint the flags?

    They are excellent.

    Thanks for your kind comment Guy.ย  The flags on the last two units are made by me using the SYW project data, copy, cut,paste, draw, sized to requirements and printed on cheap Tesco’s paper.

    A lot of my flags are from David at “Not by Appointment” blog site.

    If you ever face an Ork army, you’ll outnumber them ๐Ÿ™‚
    Nice as usual. When’s your next opportunity to get them into action?

    I think garrison troops would stand up well against orcs, Cheers Jim.ย  Not sure a lot of family stuff happening at the moment.

    Finished these Austrian grenadiers using Hat figures, the drummer is a Revell figure (got to touch up the drum stick) a generic unit.
    No flag this week I wanted some grenadiers without flags.

    The figures do work well. How are the packs for unusable figures?

    Thanks Jim, I bought several boxes and found all of the figures useful.

    That’s good, Airfix traditionally had at least some figures that you struggled to use ๐Ÿ™‚

    I prefer the Austrians to the Prussians boxes Jim, though in the Prussian marching box you get a shed load of spare hats.

    These are from the Austrian command.ย  With thanks to Plastic Soldier Review for the photos.

     

    These are from Austrian marching.

     

    These are Austrians in action.
