Imagi-Nations Project # 2

So the Imagi-Nations Project is taking shape. With two new Regiments complete. The Bordeaux from the Princedom of Alsace and the Von Karl Regiment belonging to the Duchy of Struddlhiem.

Bordeaux Regiment

Von Karl Regiment

Why Imagi-Nations? Because it frees me from historical expectations when playing scenarios. One problem I had with my French and Austrians. It also allows me to create my own uniforms 
though its not easy to break the habit of painting historical Regiments.  :)

The current Book I'm reading.

Adapting my early 18th century Regiments.

I'm resizing the War of Spanish Succession Regiments so they can be used for Old school rules and the many Scenarios and Table top teasers I own. Twelve figure battalions just aren't enough. Eighteen is 50% better! :P

I will most likely use the rules from the book Charge but adapted to my table and unit size.
Of course after adaptions it will probably only see the spirit of the rules left.

Some new French Gun Crew and Howitzer.
