|War of the Spanish Succession, work in progress:|
Two Imperialist36-figure infantry regiments
|Five of my infantry units, all undercoated, and 3 of my|
four cannon. Some further progress on the Alt Heisier (white)
and de Wendt (grey) Infantry.
4 General Officer/Staff figures;
4 Cannon each with 4 crew figures;
6 x 36-figure line infantry regiments;
1 x 36-figure grenadier 'regiment';
2 x 24-figure cavalry regiments;
1 x 24-figure dragoon regiment.
|Same box: different view.|
I Battalion: Officer with sword, flag, drummer, 15 soldiers
II Battalion: Officer with spontoon or half-pike, other flag, other drummer, 15 more soldiers.
The Grenadier 'Regiment' is a decision I somewhat regret, but it is too late now. Better might have been to make 4 figures in each of the 7 regiments grenadiers, which could have been 'syphoned' off to form a 28-figure over-strength battalion; leaving 32-figure regiments each of 16-figure battalions.
I had originally intended to base the infantry on 15mm frontage per figure, in pairs, with some individuals. However, I was persuaded to place them on 20mm frontages instead. That did mean redoing one unit. Fortunately it was just the one unit!

yet to be done, but they are starting to look like something.

managed to pick up on line.
|Downloaded flags after I have played around with them using|
Microsoft 'Paint' feature - a very useful tool. The quartered flag at
bottom left I created for the Brandenburg-Bayreuth Infantry
based on other information.
|Alt Heisier Infantry. Almost finished...|
|Holstein Ploen Infantry. Last night I did some outlining of ||
details. Some of these fellows are wanting their swords, too.

Next time, I'll talk about the Cavalry.
