No new unit yet, but I have been playing around with a little side project. I designed and printed movement trays with a label on them. Below is an example for the II/30th Foot. I thought this would be a nice way to show the unit designation. The label is at the front since these will mostly be in display cases rather than the gaming table. I won't redo all the photos - and it will take a while to print all these - but maybe the Prussians will get photographed with their trays.

And here we have Landwehr Btn. Peine which concludes not only Vincke's brigade but all Hanoverian infantry.



Now the only thing left is the 3rd Netherlands Division and the Netherlands Cavalry (and the inglorious Duke of Cumberland Hussars...).

Hurrah! Congratulations on completing the Hanoverian Contingent! Mightily impressive minis as always :D  And nice touch with the unit tray and name plate. It certainly adds to the display of the unit. I cannot wait to see a full reveal of all your hard work and effort. I hope in the future you offer guided tours of your games room to visiting fellow enthusiasts. I am sure we would all pay to see it ;)

Great idea with the name tags in the front. Makes for a very nice display.

Given the scope of your project, I would imagine that the unit trays are a must.

Astonishing progress, as usual.  :-*

A label in front of the unit seems like a great idea. Movement trays are always welcome in my experience with big battles on the table.  You could always reverse them to show the controlling player the unit label.

Thank you all for the encouragement! It's time to dig into 3rd Netherlands Division. This one will be in bursts because some of the models are still en route over the Atlantic and I still need to convert the Chasseurs. For now, here we have LG Chassee with ADC to command the division, followed by Col. Detmers leading its 1st Brigade.





and 2nd Line with their Dutch-style tapered shakos (Perry Miniatures).



I am skipping the three militia units of the brigade since I already "used up" the limited Perry Dutch militia range in 2nd Netherlands Division. I might add them later if Warlord releases militia models in their upcoming Dutch wave. So until I finish converting the Chasseurs, this is it for 1st Brigade.

Travel upset my schedule, but I managed to finish the Duke of Cumberland Hussars from Hannover - infamous for retreating from the field on first sight of the French. These are based on the Perry plastic box with a bit of conversion green stuff work. I also finished the conversion of Perry's metal Dutch Jager into Chasseurs Belge so those will be coming soon.

They might have run away, a la Monty Python, but they had very pretty uniforms. Really great work!! As always I'm in awe of your project and your continued productivity!! :D

I finally bit the bullet and converted the Belgian Chasseurs. These are based on the Perry Dutch Jager models with their shako shaved down on all sides, a new "Belgic" peak sculpted on, and a shift of the plume to the side.

First we have 35e Chasseurs Belge with skirmishers.



I am skipping the four Militia battalions which appear to have remained unengaged.

Next we have 2nd Brigade commander Generaal-Majoor Alexander d'Aubremé.



36e Chasseurs Belge form the light battalion of 2nd Brigade, with the same conversions as 35e above.
