Beginning of the end?

Hi all,

Perhaps something of a predicable post title, given my last one.  Some more from George's army, this time a couple of British regiments, the 11th and 24th.

11th left, 24th on the right.


This was actually the Cub's pick.  I showed him my sheet of printed flags, and told him to pick 2; this is what he chose.  What he doesn't know, yet, is that the 24th was the regiment commanded by L-G Edward Cornwallis, who among other things was the founder and first Governor of Halifax (where I live), is a figure of local controversy (as one of his first policies here was to establish a bounty on the local Mi'kmaq people, explicitly targeting women and children), and was, I think, the uncle of the other Cornwallis, the one in that movie with Mel Gibson.

I think I'm sticking with the embiggened flags.  They've grown on me ;)

This lot make up the first of the second half of the Brit / Hanoverian army.  Next up, I think, will be some more infantry, and then some light dragoons, but might be a few extra days until I post.  I'm super busy with work-related stuff, so am only able to snatch a bit of painting time here and there for the next week or two.  I figure if needed I'll get up some pics of the backlog of stuff I did for AoS, as there's Khorne aplenty to photograph.

  2. Excellent work! You make these 6s pop! Your larger flags have grown on me too.

  3. I like the look, and the over-sized flags really work well for 6mm.

  4. Lovely looking British infantry, the oversize flags work really well for me.

  5. Very impressive - I just can’t get going on 6mm naps. They are a step too far for my skills and patience at present.
