Landwehr Update 2

Hinton Hunt Prussian Landwehr
The 2nd Neumarks shuffling into view.
A mere 8 weeks delayed, but better late than never, I present the 1st Battalion, 2nd Neumark Landwehr Infantry Regiment.

All I have to do now is wait for Ian's cavalry to arrive, which ought to be any day now.

This is my fourth Prussian battalion, and something of a milestone. I have now painted 99 Prussians. I just wish I could do them a bit faster!

  2. Thanks Tony. I don't know how I managed to miss your blog before, but I've found it now. Absolutely awe inspiring. Love the figures, and also very impressed by your terrain. Truly magnificent.

  3. I wouldn't worry about the output speed, you really are doing justice to them. Again, your attention to detail on the flag is most impressive!

    1. A very fine Rotring pen. The letters had to be "dotted" on rather than drawn. I may have stored up a bit of trouble in the future as I found that the ink ran under acrylic varnish so I had to revert to humbrol gloss for the first coat. Not sure what I'm going to do if I have to create anything other then black lettering!
