IR-3 Prinz Geoffrey (15mm Old Glory)

I completed the second 15mm Old Glory Battalion for Warfare in the Age of Reason last night. Presenting IR-Prinz Geoffrey. I will have to invent a name for the Colonel as the Prinz will most likely lead the Cavnderian Army. Regretfully I did not have a flag to put with the unit when I took the pictures. They were Hungarian style uniforms. I am not overly pleased with my painting of red on the uniforms. I have never painted red well, but I still try. The ensigns face seems misshapen in this photo.


View from the other side, very strange pose for the ensign with his hand behind his back or is it just me? I now think I should have painted the drummers swallows nest green to match the undercoat, oh well there is always another battalion.






Front view of the battalion, i do like the officer waving his hat.










IR-3 and IR-4 Fitzgerald, I think the "royal" regiments will stand out quite nicely. Really need to print out that flag today. I am thinking of designing one more flag specifically for the Prinz's Regiment.



One more picture for fun. I hope this strikes some fear into the Dey. I will be working on finishing IR- Jung and probably will then work on IR-von Bear. I am starting to design the Hussar uniforms and will post them soon. Finally, will be working on my 28mm Bavarians and the Duchess for the SYW convention.

Very nice looking lads. I do hope that the Bey is trembling in his slippers at the thought of going up against such troops!

Very handsome lads indeed! They look like they can't wait to get into the fray.

Indeed the regiment stands out, as befits its exalted status!
A good trick to have most of enemy's artillery concentrated on a single target...: the price of seniority?

Fantastic! They are absolutely lovely... very well done!

Excellent little castings, and you've done them proud in their uniforms. St. Maurice salutes you!

I concur . . . a nasty lot of warriors . . . the Bey will not be happy.

Excellent troops! The red looks fine to me. I still find it hard to believe these are 15mm and not 26mm or so! :-)

Prinz Geoffrey said...

Thanks for the compliments gentlemen. I must raise some Bizerrcan troops soon, those anatolians have been calling out to me and I swear they are 15mm.
