30 Years War Bavarian Cavlary

HI everyone!!!

I had some time today after going to the beach to paint up the firs of many 28mm figures for the 30 Years War. I am going to be working on building a force of Bavarians for an upcoming campaign that will be run at our local club here in Stockholm.





The mounted figure is from Bohemian troops LINK and is a great figure. I ordered 6 figures to create the cavalry unit that I want to make.  I will have a total of 6 mounted troops, including one officer, one ensign and four troops. 







The horse is from Front Rank LINK the mounted miniatures from Bohemian troops are designed to work with the Front Rank Horses that can be found on there website.



This is the first time I have painted a figure from the 30 Years War.



I will have more pictures as I paint up the other miniatures.

Have a great weekend!!!!

    1. Thank you Phil, now I need to paint the other 5. I like doing one first to see what colors I will be using and then go into mass production.

    1. Hi Michael!

      Yes I listened to what you had said about the figures having some motion or life to them for skirmish type games. I think this one has some life to it. All the horses I ordered are at the charge except this one and one more that are rearing up.
      I have a lot of painting to do with this project, the Scanian Naval War project, and my WWII Chain of Command project. Oh and I like to play some games too... lol.

      See you at the club soon!

    1. Thanks Soren, do you think this is a good color scheme for the Bavarian's? also should the other figures have different color shirts? or would they all be the same?

      your advice would be appreciated.

      Thanks
