Very nice. I have an imagi-nation battalion in mind with orange facings etc. Did you use a colour straight from the pot or mix a shade?

Fusiliers are not represented enough on the table in 18th Century games.

I have the flags and the unit for IR49, not sure whether I will proceed though....I do have a lot of Fusilier units, 8 regiments at the last count!

Jim, your 2nd battalion is lovely and the orange is perfect. I hope you sell loads of Minden Fusiliers they are superb figures.

I used a Howard Hues color called "Brick Red" #1163 as the shade color for the orange and an old Ral Partha or IWM Basic orange as the highlight color. These figures were a lot of fun to paint due to their unusual color and maybe I will follow up with the IR40 Fusilier regiment which wore pink or rose small clothes.

A question: I couldn't get the picture to import at a smaller size . I seem to recall that this happened before at the old WD3 and it was fixed by changing something in the settings section of our personal profiles. Does anyone know how to fix this?

Beautiful figures Der Alte Fritz,
I haven't seen the Minden figures in the flesh but every time I see them online I want to go buy some. If only they done 18mm as I dont have space for 28mm.
cheers
Paul
