Monrovian Army - the Foot Regiments (4 off)

Put the finishing touches to the bases for the last unit yesterday and did a little photo shoot. I've re-worked three existing units and added a fourth scraped together from spares.  All the units bear flags from a number of sources, some real from the period and others derived from flags of germanic states.

 The fourth regiment (from spares), my favourite so far - I like the main flag (derived from that of the Electorate of Brandenberg)

At the moment these 4 regiments will make be enough to start gaming once the Wittenberg foot regiments are done - these will take longer to do as they in not very good condition,  some of the figures are in need of some better heads and all need quite a bit of repainting work as well.

Monrovian army - three regiments of horse

After finishing the Lifeguard, had a bit of session and refurbished three more regiments of horse for the Monrovian army, with a paintwork tidy and some new standards...
 there are two more regiments to be refurbished, these need a bit more work to finish off (a couple of new bases,  one unit needs heads to be added ....)

Looking eastward ...

I've been getting interested in things more eastward from my two imaginary nations. The wars between the Austrians, Polish and Ottomans. I have the Osprey Polish books, I recently got some books by Bruno Mugnai on the Ottomans

lots of great illustrations, text in Italian but has english translations for the uniform plates.   It may take some time before something materialises .....(if at all...);  maybe I'll use some figures from the Irregular Miniatures 42mm Renaissance range.

Monrovia - Dragoon Regiment von Holnstein

The last of the planned dragoon regiments for this project. The second for the Monrovians.

[Note: All the dragoon regiments are done with 8 figures mounted and dismounted 10 + horseholder vignette. I should really have more mounted figures. Since they are likely to be dismounted most of the time then the disparity isn't obvious. The area of the combined bases of the dismounted dragoons equals that of the mounted ones (about 120 sq cm). ]
