League Of Augsburg In 10mm (6)

Hi all,
I finished another foot regiment for my Williamite army for the League of Augsburg these are Danish foot guards I followed the colour plates that warfare miniatures produce and went with the straw coloured jackets although some sources say orange .  I said to my self they know what they are talking about so that's my colour choice .  They didn't show the officers so I took a look on there League of Augsburg blog and there figures show the officers in reversed colours so again that's good enough for me . 
  There is no pike with this unit the Danes and Dutch had given p and moved to the flint lock and plug bayonet by this point . So that's it for now until next time........
Regards Gav .

League Of Augsburg in 10mm (5)

Hello all,
This is another regiment for my Williamite army this time it's Villiers dragoon regiment . Because they are Dragoons I wanted to show the horses different colours these regiments were often at the back of the queue for horse flesh . The horse blankets I painted white trim I could find no evidence for this it just felt right it was the same for the blanket roll . The regiment colour is paper painted I have used pendraken miniatures printed colours but they didn't have this one . So how hard could it be a simple white flag with gold trim .
  So that's my first mounted unit I am now waiting on more foot so it may be a couple of weeks before you see more . All the best.........
Regards Gav .

League Of Augsburg in 10mm (4)

I have finished another Williamite regiment this time Trelawneys regiment of foot I have mixed the poses from Pendraken's advancing and firing poses . The command stand showing the colours ensigns are actually senior officers I cut out the spatoons and drilled out the hands with a 4mm micro drill bit then cut down the pikes to make the pole . I also added a mounted officer from the mounted officer from the senior command set . So the next regiment will be mounted Dragoons so if you like the nine years war/ League of Augsburg stay tuned for more . But for now it's back to the commission  and one of my Langton sailing ships .
 All the best Gav .

League Of Augsburg 10mm (3)

Hello all,
I have another regiment of foot completed this time the Earl Of Meath's I tried to show these in a slightly darker red as you can see they have white cuffs and dark grey breeches with light grey stockings . I am painting another regiment of foot then I will move on to a cavalry regiment as I don't have enough little blokes to make full regiments of foot .
