At last I finally finished my 2nd Saxon infantry battalion. This is the 1st battalion of the Von Low regiment for the 1812-23 period with dark blue facings and silver/white buttons.
Pretty happy how these guys turned although my camera work hasn't quite picked up the shading.
I can feel myself getting older as I don't seem to hit the buttons how I used to.
I love doing these close up shots as it kind of works like a magnifier and gives me an idea of detail I have missed.
Forgot to do the yellow/black between the facing colour on the drummers wings however I have read 1 reference text with facing colour alone on them so I think I will leave them be.
My favourite wee guy of the whole battalion. The reason being is I know nobody else has this figure as I converted him myself with head swap and green stuff detail added. Something cool about knowing he is the only 1 in the world (daft I know). Maybe I should have given him a tash?
So that's 2 battalions down with 2 more line battalions, a light battalion, artillery and some jagers still to go (I may also add a grenadier battalion?).
