Linesmen 3


Hinton Hunt Prussian Line Infantry
I spent the day at home today as one of the kids was feeling unwell, so with nothing in particular to do I completed the basing and varnishing of the 10th (1st Silesian) Infantry Regiment.

It was a pleasure to paint these chaps - they look so Prussiany!

I'm not completely decided, but I think I can feel some landwehr infantry coming on next.

  2. Very nice indeed. I used to get my Hinton Hunt figures from the small shop in Camden Passage in Islington. You could buy 100 infantry for a fiver

  3. A wonderful sight! What basing material have you used (I like the slightly rounded edges)?

  4. Same as you! 2mm plasticard. The rounded edges are achieved by scraping the corners a couple of times against a bit of sandpaper. I also very lightly sand the surface to help the paint stick to it a little more easily.

  5. When you could get 100 infantry fir a fiver the average weekly wage was £25.

  6. You can now get 2 frozen yoghurts for about a fiver from the same shop in Camden Passage - but no toy soldiers!!!

  7. They remind me a lot of the Hinton Hunt figures I used at the WHC in Scarborough years ago - excellent looking unit!

    Nice officers from dhcwargamesblog. His Von Hiller figure would look very suitable with your Silesian regt.
