A minor update admittedly, but I’ve had a number of ancillary units for my 15mm WSS project on the painting table for a long time. As a repeat tagline, these aren’t the nicest figures I’ve ever purchased, nor will this be my largest collection. I have only recently begun this project, but am up to perhaps 700 figures now. I’ve also just recently added a large 15mm Dixon Great Northern War Swedish unpainted army to inventory (Thanks Bob) and already have their Russian nemeses in their slot in the painting order. Great stuff!
First, after looking closely at a large bag of unpainted War of Spanish Succession figures, I saw a small bag listed as Naval/ marines. What resulted is not the best paint job in the lot, but is in fact a very unique unit for WSS or other period games. I believe the gents in the mitre caps were marines of the day (uniform grognards please weigh in) and the remainder I did with general sailor wear.
Up here is a regiment of dismounted dragoons – probably for the Grand Alliance fellows.
The Dragoons shooting are Roundway. Their command brethren are of course Minifigs.
