Napoleonic Units: Hesse Darmstadt Regiment Gross und Erbprinz


This unit is made up of Der Kriegspieler rank and file, with two original (early) Hinton Hunt officer castings, together with a David Clayton figure converted to carry the standard. The two singly-based officer figures are also Clayton castings. The flag is the home brewed one from Tony's Prometheus in Aspic blog, which turned up on the day I was completing the command group.

More predictably, I painted these figures without remembering I had previously posted Marcus Hinton's painting instructions for officers and men, and the Almark Modelworld uniform article here.

Come on Clive - get that printer sorted! That's nothing like the flag you downloaded - the experts will be sending you flak within hours...

Nice unit, though!

It won't recognise the replacement yellow cartridge (exactly the same as the one that was in). When I put the old one back in it charged ink, said it was 60% full, and printed with no yellow. Wasn't the Indian Mutiny started by cartridges?
