The battalions of Oberg, and the squadrons of dragoons were to make a false attack on the left of the river, while the other three battalions entered the town by the bridge on the right…. — The Operations of the Allied Army, Under the Command of His Serene Highness Prince Ferdinand, Duke of Brunswick and Luneberg, During the Greatest Part of Six Campaigns, Beginning in the Year 1757, and Ending in the Year 1762
I’ve finished another regiment in 10mm. It’s the Oberg regiment. I have 5 infantry battalions, 3 cavalry regiments, command stands and a couple of supply wagons to paint. Then I need to construct the terrain and assemble cardboard buildings before I can game the 1758 engagement at Hoya.It isn’t hard to paint 10mm figures as long as you make sure your brushes have good points for better control.I use a combination of Vallejo and Reaper paints. A wash followed by highlights is very helpful to bring out the details on these figures.I find it is much easier to paint 10mm figures than to photograph them!The von Oberg regiment in column. At this time the Hanover regiments were single battalion regiments.The von Hauss regiment (with straw facings) in column on the left & von Oberg regiment (with yellow facings) is on the right.The French patiently wait as the Hanoverians advance.
Please feel free to comment on this post. I’m still learning to paint 10mm figures and struggling to photograph them.
