Having already painted a good sized contingent of British and Kings German Legion troops it was time to start on some Hanoverians for the Hundred Days campaign.
I picked up a box each of Warlord Games Waterloo British line and Late Hanoverian Infantry so that I could mix them into units. As the Hanoverian Landwehr were typically in Stovepipe shakos I really should have used the Peninsular British infantry instead of the Waterloo ones, but ho hum!
Rather than being hand sculps, these are digital sculpts and although technically very good the limitation of digital sculps back when these were released really shows.
Some of the detail can best be described as lumpen and I think three or four battalions will be about the limit of my endurance for painting them.
Each box contains four frames of five figures, as the Hanoverian Landwehr did not have flank companies you should discard the figure with swallows nests, hence my 20 man battalions rather than the 24 man unit intended with the box content.
The standards are from the excellent GMB Designs range
, this unit having a Kings colour and the white Regimental.
Although, I should not have painted any figures from the flank company I wanted to add one KGL veteran to the mix so this seasoned campaigner with the beard filled out the unit.
The set comes with a blister with four command figures and this chap in the greatcoat turns out rather nicely.
I've another unit of these underway and plan to pick up another box of Hanoverians and a box of the aforementioned Peninsular infantry to complete the brigade.
