1672 Dutch Artillery
« on: March 10, 2022, 09:36:27 AM »


Here is my first unit of 1672 artillery, a unit of Dutch which, most improbably, I painted myself! They are from North Star 1672 range with a lovely officer from Warfare Miniatures.

Very pretty. Bases look nice and natural too. Would love to see the rest of the army and for that matter opponents...

Great stuff. Thinking of these for a pirate game as the Spanish. Yellow?

Thanks chaps!

There is, conveniently, a 1672 Spanish range. They are very Spanish-looking but I suspect the uniforms are 1660's - by 1672 I think the Spanish were more similar to the French, in style.  Hasn't stopped me buying a couple hundred, though. ;-)

These are great !

Can I ask about the red sashes and cuffs - was this a Dutch Artillery thing? Iíve gone with orange on mine - but not sure this is from any other reason than Dutch = Orange!

Sash colours- I think there are some orange ones in a Knotel print, but I don't think anyone knows for sure, I've read various sash colours suggested. The blue with red cuffs seems reasonably likely for Dutch uniforms, though.  If I could have been fagged, I'd have repainted the sashes (I had a couple already in red) orange as the most likely colour.   But 1672 is like the ECW, yer pays yer money and yer takes yer choice.

This is a period I am looking at with great interest, for the same reasons too, a comfortable bit of leeway in colour details - and this battery is inspiring!  8) 8) 8)
