A few soldiers, a start...........

Out of my miniatures collection these are the only 25mm 18th century soldiers that I have. The militia (Rogers Rangers, not sure as to what European militia should look like, surely some were hunters in the Black Forest) I bought painted at a local store about 5 years ago for a dollar. The grenadiers I bought unpainted on eBay. Anyway as far as the grenadiers go I primed them up, and started to paint one with a broken gun (it will still shoot & poke). The Grenadier Guards will have a uniform of green and white, with the bear fur hats being dyed a darker green than their coats.

I think you could probably use the bottom set as "volunteer jagers"...basically a group of militia jagers as opposed to the standing jager formations in the army.

Auston,

Green and white will look nice together. Please keep us updated with photos of your painting progress.

Enjoy the weekend,
