Has anybody here contemplated a Wurttemberg army?

I've been working on this army for the last 6-7 months and finally finished. Very satisfying project to do. I'm a bit over Napoleonics for while, though.

This really first started several years ago when I picked up a couple of Wurttemberg units from Newline Designs. Then they got rid of the range and I couldn't add to it. Then Front Rank came out with their range a couple of years ago. I bought enough for 4 more battalions and finished two (yellow facings) then lost interest. I revived it once I saw that Front Rank had finished the range.

The idea was to have enough for a stand alone force with enough variety to keep it interesting.

Totals are:
8 Battalions of Line infantry
2 Light battalions
2 Jaeger battalions
2 Chevauxleger regiments
2 Horse Jaeger regiments
1 Hussar regiment
2 6lb foot batteries (2 guns each)
1 12lb foot battery
1 6lb horse battery
includes all skirmishers and command

Flags are mostly Flags of War. A couple of Maverick Models flags as well.
Bases are 'magbases' from Shogun Miniatures.

Hope you like them.

Cheers,
Mick

Nice job!

I think that was time well spent. I really like those figures. They look like the would match Calpe figures from a size standpoint.

If I could paint that well, I'd be "on" Napoleonics 24/7. :-)

Amazing, A beautifully painted army.

Excellent really top shelf!

That must have cost a fortune in tufts and grasses right?

Beautifully done, and an Army on my bucket list since this is the area of Germany that my ancestors came from.

Very impressive…after I finish my Bavarians I'm going to do a Wurttemberg army. You've inspired me to continue on that path.

Marvelous.

I am envious beyond belief. Beautiful work. I have exactly the same figures and organization for my Wurties. I just have to paint them.

Well done.

Blue Max07 Jun 2014 3:12 p.m. PST

Impressive!

Bandolier Supporting Member of TMP07 Jun 2014 3:14 p.m. PST

Wow, thanks for all the comments.

I hoped that waiting until it was done and showing it at once would have a good impact. Seems like it worked!

I try to put some time into the basing as it helps with the overall effect.

Nice to see that it's inspiring others to finish off their Wurttembergers.

Sparker Inactive Member07 Jun 2014 3:24 p.m. PST

Absolutely outstanding work Mick! I hope we will see these in action at the Hall of Heroes in 2016 when I hope to recreate the 1809 campaign….

Love in 28mm. Real true and deep love.

Very nice Mick, although there is a button missing and one has his fly undone….:)

Personal logo Mserafin Supporting Member of TMP08 Jun 2014 10:42 a.m. PST

Wow, those are inspiring!

Well done, that man.

AuvergneWargamer08 Jun 2014 12:37 p.m. PST

Outstanding!!!!

6 to 7 months is amazing given the standard and number of figures.

Interesting that the Newline ones are different but they do add variety.

Quite inspiring but I will resist Wurttembergers until I've painted myself, more likely got others to do them for me, the 15 unstarted Battalions of Bavarians so that they can join my 8 painted Battalions.

Cheers,

Paul
