My first unit for Might & Reason. And yes the Leifbahne is upside down…
BTW if someone has an idea about how to remove the flag without destroying it in the process…

I like them.
When you are recreating large battles, I think the smaller scales are ideal for giving the massed troop effect.
Good luck with the flag.
Thanks for sharing.

Very nice. I see your bayonets have survived. I bought a 96 fig pack of musketeers from the GNW range and a lot of bayonets are casualties.

Perhaps the unit is trying to make a statement with the flag? Make up a story to justify it. ;-)

Love the paint. What size are the bases?

When you can make out the faces at this scale, you are doing something right! Good job and superb figures by Baccus… Just wish I had people willing to play 6mm in my area for something other than microarmor and Epic…

It is a regimental tradition to go into battle with the flag upside down. Dates from the time sergeant Schmidt impaled a Frenchman with the flagpole….

I just wanted to come back and say that if these were 15s, they would be great--being 6s--they are amazing

Historicalgamer Inactive Member26 Sep 2011 6:05 a.m. PST

I would just put another flag over that one……

Thanks all for the comments !!
@ Historical gamer : Should have thought of this one…

But I prefer to say that the former Fahnenjunker was a bit on the drunkard side and on the GroBenschlaffzeit fied of battle save the day by charging the enemy with his upside down Leifbahne instead of following the retreat.
Got killed in the process but the tradition remained.

I've at last finished a second unit for Might & Reason, the 8IR Von Braunschweig-Bevern Musketeer Regiment. Still 6mm minis from Baccus. Sorry for the not so good picture, these days I have to use my son's compact camera.
Hope you'll like.

How is the flag attached to the staff? If it is with white glue , a little clean water dropped on it will loosen it up. If you are careful you can then work it off. If it a gum adhesive use finger nail polish remover or lighter fluid. With either water or the fluids be careful, you will have to allow them to soak through the paper. This will make the paper weak. I would work the holding the base up side down to prevent anything running down on the figures. Good luck.

Very nice and a very good paint job. Waiting for the cavalry.

Got a third regiment done… At last.Without further ado, the 18IR Prinz Von Preussen

They look fantastic.How long would it take you to paint a base of figures? Lilbow73

Thanks for the nice comment !
I'd say around 4-5 hours for a base.
