Slowly coming out of my winter depression, (no biking & no painting due to it being to cold and my painting table is in my garage) I've actually managed to get out on my bike in February !! Anyway enough of this babbling on to the figures
Hanoverian regt Von Goden, the latest of the Bluemoon figures I bought last year, these are slightly better than the helmeted cuirrassiers, but with the same poor horses, there is no option of a bugler just kettledrums hence the dragoon drummer in 2nd squadron, not happy with this but as niether Essex or Dixons would "fit in" I was left with no choice, the flags are old ones from AJ Dumelow, not sure if they are still available.
The artillery is Bavarian , the figures are from Hallmark, excellent they are too if slightly on the small side compared with Dixons, with these just 2 more infantry regts to paint and the Bavarians will be finished.

NOW Do I Get a +2 ? ?

So the Priest has finally arrived to lead the the Irish Guards, he is a Bluemoon figure from Nuns and Priests pack from their horror range, bit of an expense buying a full pack for 1 figure but he is a must have. So now can I claim +2 for holy protection and throw the pretender from the throne ??
I have tried a new basing style for the Priest, after input from Ray (don't throw a one) and have tried to match the Guards with it , in an okish fashion, all comments welcome.
