New Wurtemburgers

Just a short post this time. If you read the comments on some of the posts you'll have seen that Chris is painting a Wurtemburg division for me. Well he's been good enough to send some photo's of the latest two units, a foot battery and another battalion, so here they are.

The figures are from firing line miniatures and I'm assuming that the flags are from GMB.

It looks like Chris has gone for the "misty morning in the mountains" look. Very atmospheric and much better than what I would have thought of. I need to start putting more thought into setting up good photos, you can't just keep sticking a couple of trees behind a battalion. As you can see Chris has done a lovely job on these lads and they'll shortly be joining the two other battalions that Chris has done so far. The plan is to have six battalions and a foot battery eventually with perhaps a regiment of light cavalry to round it off.

And the light infantry?
No Wurttember contingent is finished until the lights were skirmishing in front!

Have you looked at Elite? Pete Morbey has just brought a new range out.

Elite don't do any light infantry types...The connoisseur ones are alright, I'll send you a picture

Mate I think these are great! I really like the Wurtemmberg uniforms, more so than the Bavarian with the high crowned Kasket!

Good stuff!
