War of Spanish Succession Dutch (7)


This week I've added more units to the late 17th / early 18th Century Dutch force to battle the tyranny of Louis XIV.

I've completed the Dutch Cuirassiers that were pictured in last weeks post. As I know nothing of the unit the mid-blue standard is entirely speculative.




Another, troop of dragoons for the Van Schlippenberg regiment have been painted, both a mounted and a dismounted base for them.





The last unit painted is a battalion of infantry from the Orange-Friesland regiment, blue coats this time rather than the usual greys.




As the Dutch contingent is pretty much complete now I thought I would be a good excuse to lay it all out for a photo en mass. I think with 21 bases of foot, 20 bases of horse, 3 bases each of mounted and dismounted dragoons, 4 guns, plus commanders it's about ready to do battle.
