Birthday self-present

Since last June 5th it was my birthday, I decided to buy a present for myself. Luckily enough there was an auction on e-bay for some 6mm armies nicely painted. I won this Hannoverian Army:



which adds to some Hannoverians I bought a couple of years ago from which I extracted 4 bases of infantry and three of cavalry. From these I plan to obtain 6 bases of infantry and 4 of cavalry to arrive at a force of 20 battalions and 28 squadrons.

Since my Kolin project is still idle due to lack of time, I decided to use my few spare time to rebase all them to my standard V&B bases, in order to have a sizable Hannoverian contingent around which to build up an Allied army for the Western theatre battles.  

In the meantime I painted in last May some additions to my army list which allows me to play more battles between Prussians and Imperials. Next post I'll show them.

They are very handsome - well done. More importantly, happy birthday! - you deserve a present, I think!

Hey! I'm like 99% sure those are some Hanoverians I painted and sold years ago. Where did you get them from. Seems like all my old 7YW is making its way to Italy.

Yes Kronos, indeed I recognized the style. I bought them from Germany:)

BTW, I have seen the latest additions on your blog. Nice miniatures again. If you plan to sell them in a future, call me.... :-))

As ever,
Fabrizio

Well I think my gaming group would kill me if I even considering selling the new batch of 7YW troops. Hanovieran/British should be done within a month and working a little on Reichsarmee. But if you need a unit or two to round out a particular force just give me an email I'm sure we can work something out.

It is useful obtaining new recruits that have already been issued uniforms. I look forward to future updates as they are absorbed into your armies.
