It's taken a while to get these done, they are, a combination of the Strelets Dragoons "in attack" and "on the march". Five were painted as French and one as Dutch. I went for a varied set of uniforms rather than matching an orbat.
My first batch straight off the printer, but having checked all are about 10% undersized.
Is it March already? It seems like I've only just started February. So I'm way behind plan and family has revealed that they will descend on us in late April/May. So it is time to fire up the printer so space can be cleared in sufficient time. So on that basis my plan is
- French Dragooons and one Dutch for the WSS - just undercoated
- More British & French Cavalry for the WSS
- Australian infantry and heavy weapons for North Africa WW2
- Free French Foreign Legion heavy weapons for North Africa WW2
- Restart resin 3D printing with some 20mm Napoleonics
A very large batch of 3D printed resin has now been finished, with all the French vehicles I could find files for. I have subsequently found more I "need" and I'll print them when I next start up the printer. The basis was the equipment needed to fit the orbats in the new Rapid Fire books for 1940. The mass:-
These are the new releases from Redbox for the Jacobite Rebellion of 1745, but they will work just as well for the Seven Years War. I painted up 6 units from 4 boxes and by using a few Jacobite left overs added a trio of generals. Only Dragoons were present in the '45. The Horse was in Germany. Since I already had some cavalry I painted one as British and the other two as Hanovarian
