I use battalions of 20 figures, so 60 figures for a regiment, plus some extras for a skirmish line, so three boxes isn’t enough for a full brigade. However I’m sure the command sprues will become available separately at some point soon, or I can use some spare metal command figures. Ironically, these plastics fit in perfectly size and style-wise with the old Helion/current North Star 1866 range as they dwarf the older Perry sculpts produced for Wargames Foundry back in the day.
Despite initially wanting to do three regular battalions as noted earlier, my first battalion has been built using the Landwehr head option.
I’m taking the lazy approach to starting these by using a Prussian Blue spray primer, but why not? It’ll do amd it’s one less job to worry about. Incidentally these Landwehr are destined for a refight of Langensaltza against the Hanoverians at some point in the future. Before then they’ll no doubt appear against the Federal German forces along the River Main. I just need to paint Hanover’s finest of course!
Now back to some Goths, again! When will it end?
