Brunswick National Contingent
I've brought my Brunswickers down from the loft to photograph the national contingent and here are the Hinton Hunt ones - the S Range, Douglas, Kirk and other figures will appear on the Lone S Ranger and Old Metal Detector blogs.
My regret about the Hinton Hunt Brunswickers are that they are for the Hunrded Days Campaign - not really suitable for my preference of the Peninsula, where the earlier Polrock is preferable - this is where the figures from other manufacturers come into their own. Also Marcus Hinton made Leib Battalion (Guard) and Avant Garde but not line battalion figures.
Moving down the pictures, we have the Duke of Brusnwick, and with infantry, then the Avant Garde (not a Cubist in sight), then more infantry, the hussars, and some pictures of the massed Hinton Hunt forces.
Some of the hussars and some of the firing infantry I bought painted from Terry Wise, so they have a poignant feel to them.
I have a third battalion of unpainted der Kriegspielers waiting to reinforce this contingent.
