IR#3 von Browne

 Not my best photography, but, nonetheless, here they are, IR#3, von Brownes' own regiment of foot. They are marching along behind IR#3, von Prittwitz.
 Being part of a friendly competition in a group is a great way to motivate yourself. I've found a recent painting challenge a real boost and used it to push out 33 olley-points' of figures in the past ten days; a real first for me!
As must be pretty obvious now, i'm basing the Alzheim Army look on that of Bavaria albeit with the almost mandatory mistake on coat colour. Rather than the correct dark blue, I've opted for the rather more "heraldically correct" pale blue. You'll note that it goes quite nicely with the Bavarian flags that I'm using.
I sourced these beauties from Warflag and my partner Amy did me the kindness of sizing them correctly for my Spencer Smiths as well as getting them all into the one document - another version of "friends with benefits"!
Anyway, back to work - I'd like to get the Leibregiment finished and make some more headway into IR#5 "La Rosee" next.

If I were doing a Bavarian (or psuedo-Bavarian) unit, I too would have "cornflower blue" coats.

They look good.

Indeed, such 'Bavarians' ('Blauvarians'?) look better, and more original, than in gloomy 'Prussian' dark blue!
An unhistorical generalization, but I tend to associate Catholic armies with lighter, more gaudy colors than the Lutheran ones from the grim Northern Europe...

Morning Greg,

Ah, nothing like the site of serried ranks of Spencer Smiths with my coffee to start a Saturday! How on earth do you crank them out so fast?

Best Regards,
