Proposed color schemes for upcoming musters

DSCN2189.JPGDSCN2190.JPGI am in the process of deciding on color schemes for a couple of the other regiments I want to field. The first is a Ruritanian regiment known as “The Canaries” – shamelessly lifted from the Swiss battalion in Napoleon ‘s service in the early 1800s (the Neufchatel battalion – but I changed the facing colors).These are RSM figures and I have the regiment on hand right now, just awaiting uniform issue.

DSCN2191.JPGDSCN2192.JPGThe next regiment will also be RSM figures but will be a mercenary regiment from Toorkee. The two figures on the left are from the Janissaries and the right figure is a Bosnian/Albanian figure.

ROYAL_GUARD_with_BOW_or_SOLAK.JPG The Janissaries will form the officer ranks and grenadier company and the Bosnians the line companies. Just for a laugh, I might use the Royal Guard with bow figure for the light infantry company! Comments on the proposed scheme are solicited as well as the figure choice for the Toorks.

I have been wargaming as long as I can remember. I met my wife when I was 14 and had been gaming long before that so that should give you an indication as to how long it has been. One of the first games I owned was Anzio by Avalon Hill. I drove over to the hobby shop in the snow to pick it up as I finally had the money to get something! I can remember playing with Airfix figures and Roco tanks back in the 6th grade and before.
