More terrain and troops for our War of the Spanish Succession games, this time a windmill, some English horse and Danish foot.
Firstly the terrain piece of a windmill and outbuilding.
This comprises two resin buildings from Leven Miniatures, firstly the Dutch Windmill and the building is an 'Ancient Cottage' piece. The crates, sacks and barrels are from Perfect Six Scenics.
The sails on the windmill are free rotating on a piece of brass rod. I thought that if I glued them on they would likely break very easily, hopefully if they are removable they may be a little more resilient.
Next completed was a couple of squadrons of English horse representing Lt. General Lumley’s Regiment with blue cuffs and turn-backs and yellow saddle cloths and lace.
All the figures are from the Baccus War of the Spanish Succession range.
The paint job is a simple base-coat with some highlighting then a wash with a mix of Tamiya Smoke and Tamiya Clear varnishes.
The French and Bavarians have been getting a lot of reinforcements in my most recent updates, so this time I decided to add a unit of Danish foot in English service. I'm unsure of the actual regiment, but the scheme is taken from a plate in the Marlborough's Army 1702–11 book with a rather nice red lace on their tricorns.
