Infantry Regiment Slangenburg

A native Dutch regiment, only recently painted. I have done the uniform coats in white rather than light grey. The actual shade for Dutch infantry uniforms varied considerably by all accounts - anything from white to steel grey would be acceptable. The drummers were clothed in red and make a nice contrast. The two figures on the left front row are grenadiers. Apart from the right hand standard bearer who is a Foundry figure, the rest of the battalion are Dixons. The flags are from Maverick Models. The imposing building to their rear is, I believe, a 20mm chateau from Sentry Models.

  1. I like to see grenadiers in each unit, they add a little flavour, also i like how you place the colour party in the rear, because thats were they stood!
