Battlescale 10mm Resin Buildings And League Of Augsburg 10mm

Hi all,
I bought some solid resin buildings from a new company called Battlescale they are based here in the UK but will ship world wide . I have added a new 10mm Danish foot regiment for scale they are based on 2mm thick mdf . I intend to base the buildings at some point but as always its as and when .
  The regiment is the Oldenburg Regiment of foot again no need for a pike block, next regiment under the brush is Derings in a nice electric blue you may need sun glasses for that one .
All the best until next time .
Regards Gav .

League Of Augsburg in 10mm (7)

Here's some more League of Augsburg,
this is a Danish horse regiment Von Donops and with it a 12pdr gun in a siege position I wanted to show a position that had been thrown up quickly overnight the 12pdr is not enough to bring down a wall but could be used to fend off a attack by the defending garrison. The crew are English one bringing up powder is from an infantry regiment used for labour .
Any way thanks for stopping by I will be posting some ab naps and more League of Augsburg soon .
  Regards Gav .

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 .
