While I still like the Blue Moon AWI figures and thought they were brilliant in the raw lead, the more of these I paint, the less I am enamored with the faces. Many have faces that a mother would disown. Oh well, the price point is excellent and from gaming distance, these figures are very good and fit in well with Eureka. Actually, en masse they look terrific! With Blue Moon releasing a SYW range proper, I may give the new SYW additions a try.

SYW Prussian 10th Musketeers
Returning back to the 18mm SYW project, the first battalion of Musketeer Regiment #10 rolls off the painting desk. The 10th is wearing its distinctive lemon yellow waistcoat, breeches, and facings. I put them in their summer white gaiters which contrast well against the yellow breeches. The accompanying grenadiers and second battalion remain to be painted to complete the 10th Musketeer Regiment. The figures are Blue Moon Hessians from the AWI range.
