His Grace the Duke of Charnwood cordially sends his greetings!
What’s this? A post after a 7 month hiatus? Well, I’ve said before that this will be a slow-burn project. In the interim, I’ve been very busy with this blog’s big brother “Suburban Militarism“. But I’ve finally taken some time out this week to at last finish off the last of the Charnwood Grenadiers. The remaining figures to paint include four grenadiers and a drummer.
These are progressing well, but there was something else that I’ve been meaning to get around to – creating the Charnwood Grenadiers flag! And here it is:
The flag is based on the Saxon Prinz Maximilian Infantry Regiment’s Leibfahne (the colonel’s flag) from 1760, information found on the excellent Kronskaf 7 Years War website. You may notice that I’ve added the name Charnwood discretely at the bottom in a fancy French script!
An update is intended soon (really!) once the remaining grenadiers are completed. Next up will be the Swithland Fusiliers or the 3rd Regiment of Foot (The Beacons).
