Forbodian Foresters - part 3

The Regiment of Foresters is now complete, except for a flag.  I still need to design one. 
All 20 figures ready for action.  I am rather pleased with the colour scheme - whatever they look like, it ain't the Iron Brigade!
Could that be the King's motor car (Rolls-Royce) in the background? 
The two coats of PVA have again made the 'toy soldier' paint scheme possible.

I am seriously falling behind in the 'race' to build up a FLW army, although I do have substantial artillery assets.

All the best,

I'm finding them easier than expected to paint - which is just as well given that I already have army no.2 planned. I bought quite a few guns but I'm in recovery now. We must arrange a game!

Looks good, for the flag use a Prussian one with allot of green...)

Not a bad idea, but that sounds a bit professional for Forbodia!

It has been my experience the smaller the nation the more complicated the flag...)

That sounds about right. One gets the impression that Forbodia is a rather self-important little state.

They are certainly a colourful lot not easily mistaken for anyone else's army.

For some reason the bright green and blue remind me of Turks while the dashing hats say "Italian". Perhaps a nice green flag with a white star, ball or other forboding symbol or else a green, blue, white tricolour.

The Turkish and Italian influences are easily explained by Forbodia's Balkan location (for political reasons it is not shown on many maps). I'm enjoying the idea of the G/B/W tricolour.
