Brunswick Grenadier Painted


Painting this figure was quite a challenge but lots of fun. Patience was key in getting the ticking on his overalls straight and even, a process which took atleast 5 hours to paint.
I used Don Troiani's studies as a guide for the front plate of the mitre cap but the rear will have to be a work- in- progress, as there wasn't a clear picture to go by. I went through Osprey titles, that featured Prussian soldiers at the time of the Seven Years War, and still could not find a clear design to use. This also would have been of no use as grenadier companies in each regiment had a different design.
