May I ask a quick question please?  Am I right in assuming that the lace on officers' tricorne hats was silver, whereas it was white for the rank and file?

Not very noticeable, but someone I know but am too embarrassed to mention the name of painted the Landwehr symbol on his Napoleonic Prussian Landwehr infantry in silver instead of white... :-)

Thanks in anticipation.

Yes,you are -but I'll be honest and say that I usually do mine white anyway as it actually stands out better than silver.

6mm is all about being able to make howlers and getting away with it. I wouldn't have even noticed the Landwehr crosses - unless of course they were done on 28mm and then you were just asking for it...

Thanks Peter.

Must admit that they are all painted and nearly all are based now, though.  I did a couple of units with blue facings and used gold/brass coloured paint for the officers' tricorne lace.

Another benefit of 6mm is that when painting a highland regiment, you don't feel too guilty about just using dark green for the tartans and not trying to paint the pattern...
