I adore your paintjob, all your battalions look splendid!
But your real talent is the vignettes! Superb! Inspirational!

These buggers have taken a while to finish. Started them 18th October. 2022.

Braunschweig Kuirassiers using Minden Austrians









I've gone for smaller flags for my Braunschweig cavalry. The big flags look great but feel a little unwieldy for a mounted chap...

A small thing but, I love those coloured flag cords and tassels.

Beautiful work.

Although my ImagiNation project started in 28mm and will continue to, lack of playing space a few years ago meant I started recreating some of it in 6mm. As you do. There was a lull, I sold what I had done, then bought it and additional stuff back again. As you do.

And I've recently returned to this project and been rebasing it all.

This is what I have so far completed...













I need more cavalry. And a few more guns. I have enough wargame standard painted stuff to do about another dozen or more infantry units but need to paint lots of command to go with them.

And these are meant to represent my 28mm stuff in 6mm so should do more Altefritzenburg types. And I have NO Braunschweig troops. The stuff at the bottom is basically 'French' so I could just do them as an entirely different army just for the 6mm...]

I probably need to make a plan of some kind... But why start now...

Your table looks perfect!
Units and trees and roads and river, like an aerial photography!
Keep them coming!

Another batch completed. These are a 6mm version of a friends 28mm Imagination troops - the Boleyn Regiment from the Gateway Alliance. His flags are little works of art so were a bugger to do in 6mm!

Been a while since I updated this thread. Had hoped to have more units done (in either 6mm or 28mm) but haven't really been feeling the big units. So I've been working on various odd character figures and attempting to finish the last of my Ratnik Miniatures Civilians.

Some denizens of downtown Altefritzenburg...







And the official Altefritzenburg executioner...



And finally finished a couple of gents and the sedan chair.









Maybe some Foundry civilians next but I really should return to the 28mm cavalry unit I started...

All those look good.  The chap with the big axe looks like he doesn't suffer fools none too well....
