GNW Generals

Hi


So the basing department has come home for the weekend again and I have a couple of command bases from her. She has been focusing on basing Marks Danes over the last couple of weeks so not much of mine over the line just yet. 2Saxon and 2 Swedish Battalions awaiting the basing departments time.


These figures are from a Warfare command pack for their Currassier wth Currais under coat. I bought standing horses in error and eventually decided that painting them as Generals might be a good use. The first one is loosely based on a picture of Swedish Field Marshall Carl Gustaf Rehnschold.


I particularly like the stance with his fist on his hip. There is a picture of Rehnschold in the GNW Compendium in this pose with a breastplate under his coat.




 I have then put the standard bearer and trumpeter on one base as a Saxon Cavalry command base. I cut the arm from the Ensign and put a sword arm on instead and quite like the result.



Just finishing the second battalion of Liv Guard so will do workbench update with these shortly.


Thanks for your time.

  3. never really liked the Warfare range. It's the horses that put me off in the main. But you've done a really good job with those and they look terrific.

    1. Cheers Paul, bizarrely enough its the horses I like! Not sure that the Ebor ones fit the riders quite so well. Hope the legs recovering well?
