First Imperial troops are mobilized

I recently made a small purchase of some metal Spencer Smith figures from the Austrian Succession range. The figures are just like the plastic ones I had in the 70s. Well I have managed to paint up my first unit of Infantry. As my Imperialist army is based on the Austrian it is no surprise that these are wearing nice clean white uniforms. This company is the first of the Kinski Infantry regiment and is named after the Empresses Joanna young daughter - the princess Emma Kins


I have matt varnished these figures and will be using them unbased. Although I may need to reconsider this once the collection grows.




I will have to place a further order to get the next 2 companies but until then I am painting a squadron of Electoral Dragoons who look like the Montmort Dragoons from Charge. These will see service in the Elector Max Josephs army.
Next units to be painted will be an Electoral Light Infantry/Frei Korps and some artillery.
My next old school game will be the first teaser from the Chiraz book using my 28mm SYW collection. I suspect the Kinskys will have a role to play as the Chiraz garrision of the arsenal.

They look splendid . . . may they perform well on the table top (and with the tavern wenches too).

The Kinski are so Klaus to the mark!

Very smart indeed.

If you intend to use SS cavalry I think you may need to base.

I have 9 SS dragoons 75% completed and was wondering whether figures would work better on a small base. I will have to see how they work once I have finished painting them.

Excellent looking unit. I'm pleased to see someone post a recent 'purchase of' with paint job on these figures.

Just getting to this post now, in January 2012, but these are delightful looking figures! Prrof positive that SSM miniatures have a lot going for them in this age of Perry and Foundry.

Best Regards,
