Ottingen's Dragoons. Swabia

After a long distraction here's some pictures of  my expanding War of Spanish Succession Armies.


Two squadrons of Ottingen's Dragoons from Swabia.

Another pic of Ottingen's Regiment.

This time some Prussians.
Sonfeld's Dragoons dismounted.

I very much enjoyed doing the horse holder.
All figures are 1/72 Zvezda's.

Brigadier General Bielke
This clean shaven young chap is commander of the
Danish Infantry Brigade that I painted earlier. 
He led them during the battle of Blenheim.
He's a Minifigs. I wonder how many different tables this 
sculpture has served on over the years?

1st Battalion, Regiment of Foot Prince Karl

A new Danish Regiment from the War of Spanish Succession.


These didn't fight in Blenheim but their brothers in the 2nd Battalion did.
I'll be doing the 2nd later on. Need to finish some cavalry now the figures have arrived.
