Well, say hello to the battalion from hell! My Nemesis.
This unit is singlehandedly the fault why I stopped doing my SYW project for 6 months.
I had trucked away at my SYW project, having done several units of cavalry and decided my infantry need to be painted. I had done 12 of these and based them, I was almost done with the next six when I realized I had f'ed up. I had painted them as Jung-Wolfenbüttel but I realized I had painted the turnbacks red, and I thought, no problem I'll just do them as Keiser instead they have the same uniform.
BUT NOOO, Keiser has white cross straps, Jung-Wolfenbüttel have natural leather. The life was drained from me. I did not want to take those 12 of the base, and so I gave up. put those 6 in a box and did other stuff. Now I started on them again and decided to just ignore the wrongness and just finish them so I can get on it my project. I finished the 6 and started on the last 6.
Then I decided I wasn't satisfied with the basing scheme, I originally planned on just doing Might and Reason, so two bases of 12, but I'm drawn more to Honours of war and games like that, So I did rip those 12 of the base, and once I had done that I thought I might as well repaint the turnbacks.
Just to make the experience complete, as I did the last 6 yesterday the power went out.(3rd time in a week) and it was out for 7 hours.
So in the end of 6 months, a battalion of Jung-Wolfenbüttel is complete and in the correct uniform...... Figures are Minden and flags are Maverick Models.
We all know The battle of Leuthen was fought in 200 meter deep snow.
