Hello everyone

Which miniatures to use for the Hanoverian troops in the British Army during the WAS to complete the magnificent Jackdaw range?

I'm looking for figurines specifically Hanoverian …

Thank you

I see that for the Hanoverians of the WAS, it is like for the Austro-Hungarian of the WAS, nobody likes them …

I don't know how much difference there was but Minden Hanoverians might fit style wise?
I don't find any pictures of jackdaw so i have no idea what style they have.

There just aren't any,I'm afraid, Breton. The Minden figures will fit uniform-wise, and don't look too bad in separate units which is what I am doing, using Minden and Crann Tara figures to supplement the missing Jacdaws across several armies of the period.

Yes, but as the uniforms are different from those of the seven-year war, ditto for the Austro-Hungarian and Prussians and as I am a purist … This can not be done for me …

I think that is much less so for the Hanoverians. If you look at the painting of the Bermerode review in 1735, the uniforms are IMO identical to those worn in the earlier part of the SYW, i.e.,with the lacing which was later removed part-way through the SYW. So the Minden figures, which show this lacing, should be OK for WAS. And paint can hide a lot too.

Yes and re-sculpture too …And for their sizes ect … They go well with the Jackdaw and Crann tara ect..?

Minden and Crann tara uses the same sculptor, so yes, they are a perfect match.

If you live in the U.K., Crann Tara actually sells Minden's Hanoverians, probably because the uniforms work for the WAS.

Yes I saw this

For the Hanoverians of the WAS, I wanted to buy Hanoverian figures from the SYW and transform them (for the WAS) but it 's stupid, I have to be able to do it by modifying with "Green Stuff" british infantry figures of the WAS , No?

Where to find 'documentations' with illustrations on the Hanoverians uniforms during the WAS ?

What are the differences between their uniforms and those of the British ?

For example, for the miters of the grenadiers?

According to some they are of the Prussian model, according to others of the English model with the horse of the Hanover?

Paskal, Do you have Summerfield's book on the Hanoverian Army of the Seven Years War? It has lots of drawings of informs going back to 1729. It should answer your questions.

Yes but I have to be certain, I do not buy it for nothing…
