Erbprinz has been mobilised

Painting of the Minot Jager has been some what slower than planned as I have spent some time basing up some of my old 28mm SYW collection ready for the Chiraz campaign. I have decided to play the campaign as standalone games. I not sure about playing the river crossing as I don’t have models of barges and pontoons so will limit the campaign to the other 4 scenarios.

The other piece of news is that the Electoral forces have been given a boost by the imminent raising of a new regiment – the Erbrpinz. I have 61 figures on order from Sweden and hopefully they will arrive in time for my birthday on the 17th March. I intend to paint these as close as possible to how the unit appears in Charge. I blame Phil Olley for this as it was seeing his pictures on his classicwargaming blog that got me hooked into recreating my youth.

As spring approaches I hope to get some more Prince August 40mm figures casted up. I have the moulds and plenty of lead so just need some fine weather and a few hours spare hours.

Go, Mark, go. Get those brushes ready. Prep for casting lead . . . and have a wonderful birthday, sir.

Best of luck in the project. Have fun. And happy birthday... and St Patrick's Day. Will you have any redcoat mercenaries at work? :)

The Erbprinz arrived yesterday. The figures are much better than I thought they would be. They are tall fellows and interestingly are taller than the musketeer NCO and standard bearer I also got.

Compared to Spencer Smith these fellows are a good bit taller.

I will post some photos of the figures and do some comparison with other figures I have in my collection.

I am looking forward to painting these and may have to put the Jager on hold while I get the first company done.
