Having completed the French part of my SYW expansion project and after due consideration I have made a start on the small Hanoverian contingent I planned to add to the collection. Just to recap at this juncture, the infantry, artillery and command will all be from Front Rank while the solitary cavalry regiment will be made up of Foundry SYW British figures gifted me by Jon last year.
The first regiment I have completed, less the Grenadiers at this stage, are the Hardenberg Infantry regiment, 6A as they are coded for reference. I confess that I chose them, and their fellows yet to be painted, purely on interesting colour combinations in their uniforms. The flags are made from free downloads I sourced through internet searches, ever the cheapskate we wargamers! Anyway, no more gabbing on, see what you think ~
The Front Rank figures can truly be labelled 'veteran' I'd say but they have a charm of their own I find still. There are one or two issues with the officer and ensign figures being labelled British/Hanoverian in the list but lacking the pompoms and oak leaves of the rank and file figures. I can live with that as in a game noone will noticed I'd say.
I mentioned the grenadiers' absence, largely due to my not yet having worked out an acceptable way of painting something approximating to the designs on the blank mitre front panels. I need to come up with a finish that is within my meagre talents yet will be acceptable on the tabletop battlefield. Don't hold your breath is all I can advise at this point...
