MUHLEHAUS REGIMENT ond examples of Harzburg Dragoons

Jay Stribling brought the
MUHLEHAUS REGIMENT to the game to show their paint job.

The line infantry and battalion gunners are great.

The Grenadiers are as great as the line.

The closest 2 castings are one of the Harzburg Dragoon squadrons commander and a trooper.

These are the other Harzburg Dragoon squadrons officer and trooper.

July update

With my digital camera broken, I am unable to post any pictures of the Capitania General de Florida game at Jackson, MS. Click here for a post from ColCampbell's Barracks to see some of the first pictures Indians and Breastworks I played the Indian tribe in the fortified village ( I hope Jim will post at least 1 picture of my braves soon). My warriors fought off three units of Britanians with the great aid of a Spanish regiment. No enemy entered the village and thus sealed the victory for our side.

Jay Stribling was presented with 2 squadrons of Harzburg Dragoons to paint once he finishes the M├╝hlehaus reinforced battalion. Jay is putting my poor painting skill to shame. If the unit fights as well as it looks, M├╝hlehaus will be garnering glory with these troops.

Life has kept me busy with Mother falling and luckily only getting a couple of bruises and sore bones. Between shopping, mowing, raking, and house duties my painting time has been curtailed. One bright spot is the arrival of 60 pounds + of lead weights to be smelted. I should get at least 40 to 50 pounds of usable lead for casting.

Well life is calling, my clothes in the washer needs to be placed in the drier. I hope to resume regular post to get mack in the habit.
