New progress pics of the Haller Regiment




I finally finished off the second company last night - plus a few extras.
I'll start adding command when my last order from DPC comes through.

Greg,

Your work keeps getting better and better.

Impressive looking troops there Greg. Good painting too. Can't wait to see the whole regiment with staff/command figures added.

Best Regards,

Thanks chaps. I'm rather itching to get my hands on that next DPC order so I can chop an Officer and an NCO around for the grenadier company officers.

I'll have to try to scratch the itch by painting the French mounted officer (the one waving his hat) as the Colonel. At least his coat has no lapels and I can paint the plue laces on.

Tangentially, I notice that in the AWI range there is an advancing British Officer who could easily transfer to the Prussian service and serve many roles...

Nice work as always. I like that the drummer boy is a head shorter than the grenadier.

What I don't like about him is that although aged apparently about 12 years, he has a moustache! Now i know that in the 7YW if nature did not provide, then the Inhaber stepped in (for a price) but this seems a little ridiculous!

Oh well.

Still, I have been tempted to try and produce a few mounted drummers for my dragoon regiments. I think if I ask nicely, Gerry Webb of Castaway Arts might sell me a few drums from his Egyptians in the Sudan range.

We'll see, anyway. Regards,

Greg
