Another of the regiments from my recent AWI project. Hessian Regiment von Mirbach, 24 man-unit on six 40mm x 40mm bases, painted in uniform colors from the best info. that I could gather. Flags are GMB Designs. Painted primarily with Citadel Contrasts and Army Painter Speedpaints.

They look outstanding! Well done.

Awesome work. I am also painting AWI using Contrast and Speed paint. What color did you use for the uniform coat and the white?

I have been disappointed by the Speed paint white which turns out grey.

Thanks guys, much appreciated!


These were a combination of both the Contrasts and Speedpaint. The uniform coats were done with Contrast Talassar Blue. I found that blue to be nice because it differentiates itself from the darker blues I used to paint some of the Continental regiments and British Royal Artillery.

I used Citadel layer paint Fenrisian Grey as a drybrush highlight over the blue coats. Fenrisian Grey is actually a good highlight for blue because it has a bluish tint to it.

Then I went back over all the coats with a Contrast medium-diluted version of the Talassar Blue as a like a glaze to somewhat subdue the slight harshness and roughness of the grey drybrush highlight and make it all blend together better.

For the breeches I used Citadel Contrast Apothecary White. Over that I did a single drybrush of pure Vallejo white Game Color paint.
