Hansastadt Infantry Newly (Re-) Based

Another 60-figure regiment of RSM95 Prussian infantry, painted this time as Hanseatic troops from Bremen, Luebeck, and Hamburg (according to an old Knoetel plate and a few other illustrations equally antiquated) back in late 2011, I think, as part of a friendly painting challenge with some like-minded wargaming friends and acquaintances in the far flung corners of the earth.  New Minden standard bearers and flags are coming here too, so the old MiniFig standard bearer lurks at the rear of the command base, but he has not been cemented into place.

Well, things are cooking here at Stollen Central for the moment, and the existing four line infantry regiments in the Army of Stollen are all rebased.  Time to paint up another unit's worth of bases and get started on rectifying base-related issues for the Army of Zichenau.  A relatively consistent and 'finished' look is the intent.  At this rate, I might be finished with the infantry much sooner than anticipated and can forge ahead with existing cavalry and artillery crews.  No denying that commercially produced bases, terrained or simply painted a uniform green, really help with presentation.

Looking. Good Stokes. I can't maintain my attention span beyond 24 figure units, but the big ones look impressive.
Cheers, Peter

Possibly the loveliest of the lot, Stokes. Simply breathtaking.
