Carpanian Regiment Clausthaler

I just added a new battalion to my Seven Years War imagi-nations forces, the Carpanian Regiment Clausthaler, named after a German beer.  It is patterned after the real-world Prussian Regiment Braunschweig-Bevern (#7).  The only distinctive change I made was to substitute a more redder "rose" for the pink rose listed on the Kronoskaf web site.

The figures are 28mm Old Glory SYW Prussian infantry and the flags are from the Warflag web site.  The battalion, like all my SYW imagi-nations forces, is organized for Bill Protz's "Batailles de l'Ancien Regime" (BAR) rule set.

Please click on the photos for a larger image.

Configured in two "companies" with three ranks each per the BAR rules.

Configured in a two-deep single line for use with other horse and musket rule sets.
Next month I hope to add another two companies to the Gallian (read French) Regiment Royal Ecossais.

Union Reinforcements

I'm continuing to slowly add to my 15mm American Civil War forces, this time some Union elements.  My ACW focus is central Tennessee with the Union XIV Corps of the Army of the Cumberland facing a modified Hardee's Corps of the Army of Tennessee.

Please click on the photographs for an enlarged image.

The figures are all 15mm Old Glory miniatures.  The units are organized for the "On to Richmond" rules.

Major General George Thomas' command group, XIV Corps

Brig Gen Absalom Baird, 1st Division command group, XIV Corps, and his division artillery
(4th Indiana Battery and H/5th US Artillery, armed with rifled guns)

Brig Gen John Starkweather's 2nd Brigade, 1st Division, XIV Corps
(24th Ill, 79th Penn, and 1st and 21st Wisc Regiments)
More will slowly be added.

Royal Ecossais Regiment

Finally after almost four years, I've finally finished the first two 12-figure "companies" of the Royal Ecossais Regiment ( link ).  And they look just as good as I hoped they would!

They are the Old Glory Jacobite range figures with everyone wearing a bonnet.  The flag of this "battalion" is the ordnance color with its dark blue field adorned by the thistle and fleur de lis.

As I stated in my 2015 post, they are organized in 12-figure companies for Bill Protz's "Batailles de l'Ancien Regime" (BAR) rules.

This "battalion" will join my Gallian army detachment that is part of the Reichsarmeeabteilung Obere Sachsen (Imperial Army Detachment Upper Saxony).

I still have another two-company "battalion" plus the grenadier and piquet companies to paint.  Gives me something to do and keeps me off the streets.
