1/23 Bandemer Grenadiers

Small Combined Grenadier Battalion completed.
The Von Focade side will need to be added.

May add a command stand in future (without flags as I am semi historical...*)
These were originally part of an imaginations army I painted in April for an Ayton big game and Ive just repainted them.
In that battle they were charged in the rear and fled without causing a single casualty.
I'm sure they will do better in the next game as sturdy Prussians...


Figures - Wargames Foundry
Colours - Vallejo Imperial Blue, Blood Red, Cavalry Brown, Gunmetal, Brass, 
Dead White, Ghost Grey, Stone Grey, Dwarf Skin, Umber and Black Washes 
Bases - 45 x 40

* A lot of people have referred to me as a bit of a semi.

Another blog.  Another blog posting pictures of Historical miniatures and wargames.  This will be accompanied by frequent tangents, the odd pause whilst life, work and video gaming roll by and definitely a seemingly endless mass of puerile comments, puns and idling.

Battle reports will catalogue both my tactical idiocy and terrible, terrible, terrible luck with dice. These battles will contain ubiquitous terrain and scenarios but will be broken up by bright colours and jokes about cress.  The blog will also annually record a massed gathering of reprobates in the north Yorkshire area.  Sorry in advance for them...

Current project is 28mm SYW...
But obviously in wargamer slang that means (And 28mm Chain of Command WW2, ACW, Lion Rampant and 1/1200 Naval...)
