That`s some Cool Painting :thumbup:

It is always my way to halfway imagine what they are saying,
but then that`s just the little i being me.

After long time a small update on this project. These are men from the 2. and 3. Batallion of the 29. Line Infantry Regiment. This regiment, created on March 4, 1815, is build form the 2nd Berg Infantry Regiment and the Bataillon de Grenadiers de Berg. Berg was a state—originally a county, later a duchy—in the Rhineland of Germany. Its capital was Düsseldorf. It existed as a distinct political entity from the early 12th to the 19th centuries.

So you know the Prussian 1.Korps project is still alive, but painting this unit really makes me crazy and slow, don't know why. I try to mix figures from different companies and I have painted for the first time some A Call to Arms Frenchmen. Very tiny and small. But my idea was to build them as a unit with mixed uniforms after a long period where this duchy was a cue ball from Napoleon. I hope I can finish the last eight figures soon. After that some more cavalry is coming. :sweatdrop: :sweatdrop: :sweatdrop:

I was a bit surprised at the white, but when I saw they came from Berg it made sense. Great figures!
