I needed one and a half day for these riflemen - including all the breaks for the drying of the colours and the glue.
Actually I need about 5 to 7 hours without greater breaks! :biggriin: ... but I prefer the more comfortable mode of painting ... with greater breaks! :::cheers::: :icon_mrgreen:

Rifle Regiment „The Sharpshooters“







The Rifle Regiment „The Sharpshooters“ is a regiment with traditions.
For more than hundred years only sons of fathers that served in this regiment can join the ranks!
Unfortunately nothing is known about the formation of this well approved rifle regiment.
But rumours has it that a poor occurrence happened at the formation. In this occurrence sheep play a vital role!
But it is better to keep silent!
The leader of the regiment is Master-Sharpshooter Hugobald Flintstock. His personal weapon is a Hochland Long Rifle.

Love the green and grey. Especially the green tone on the rangers. I have only 7 of these oldschool guys.

This project is ticking along nicely. You are doing a great job making the christmas color scheme not, well, christmas-y, in particular on your current handgunner regiment. Also enjoying the German names. Keep it up  :eusa_clap:

Thank you!  :::cheers::: I like the combination of red and green - that was one of the reasons I started an army of Hochland.  :icon_biggrin:
But I never thought on a christmas color scheme  :happy: ... but that is a very funny idea! :biggriin: :icon_mrgreen: :::cheers:::


Ranger Militia of Selmigerholz










The Ranger Militia of Selmigerholz consists of men with different professions from the region and the town of Selmigerholz.
The volunteer hunters are experienced because of their service at the borders and their ambitious scout training.
The leader of the Ranger Militia of Selmigerholz is the professional hunter and mayor of Selmigerholz Franz Holzhofer.
The striking yellow feathers on the hats of the Rangers are very important:
After some woebegone experiences with collateral damages during their service at the borders it was ordered by Franz Holzhofer to wear striking yellow feathers!
His motto therefor is: “It is better to be a little bit colourful in the forest then get a hit of an arrow in your chest from your own comrades!”
By the way - Franz Holzhofer is a real pastoral philosopher!

He does also seem quite pragmatic about camouflage as well 😸

As a hunter without any armour you need some camouflage in the forests of Hochland ... but do not turn your back to your hunter comrades ... it could be dangerous in battles! :icon_mrgreen:

The next riflemen are ready! :biggriin: ... now I have to paint "only" three more riflemen and the next regiment is ready for action! :icon_biggrin:
... at the moment I am very motivated to paint!  :happy: :::cheers:::

These rangers look great. I love how you've managed to make them look sneaky, while also incorporating the Hochland colours. :::cheers:::

Knights of the Order of the White Hills









The Order of the White Hills is an order of knights that exists since many hundred years in their preceptory Castle Schippel.
From this place they took part in every campaign and they subordinated directly to the Elector of Hochland.
But in the Guards Army Corps serves only a part of the order because the remaining knights in Castle Schippel are the last protection force of Hochland.
The knights of the Order of the White Hills are cavalry specialists in mountainous and wooded area.
In spite of their heavy armour they are very mobile and they are not afraid to ferret out an enemy in the depth of the forest.
Knights from other orders call them “The Golden Boys from Hochland” because of their golden armour.
The leader of the action force of the Order of the White Hills is Balduin von Dunstigfurt.

A new regiment in my army is ready for action:  :biggriin:

Rifle Regiment „The Riflemen of Lüthorst“











The Riflemen of Lüthorst consists of regular soldiers. They are famous for their special armament and their special experience.
Only citizens of Lüthorst and district can serve as riflemen in the regiment. They must have the retirement age and must be in rude health. Every soldier also must be experienced with the “Lüthorster Büchse” (Rifle gun of Lüthorst).
The “Lüthorster Büchse” is an invention of the Lüthorst Huntsmen Club.
This special rifle gun combines firepower and penetration power of a normal rifle but the rifle gun is more smallish and lightly as a normal rifle. (There are rumours it is better for the older riflemen!)
Because of the elitist selection criteria it is difficult to find junior staff for The Riflemen of Lüthorst.
Leader of the regiment is Hergobald Lummstick, the former night watchman of Lüthorst.
He prefers to carry a Hochland-Long-Rifle but the rifle is too heavy for him.

I like the green barding on the knights. Not a common sight. I like it very much.

I hate people who don't paint their armies, hate them with all my guts. Beats me how they value other things over painting, like eating or brushing teeth.

Just updated about this project, German names fit perfect with the Empire stuff.  :happy:

In my opinion to make your own army with their unique development is one of the best parts of wargames. The characters and regiments are looking good and I enjoy their charm stories! Keep going!

Thank you very much for your nice compliments! :happy: :::cheers:::

This is a great motivation for me! :icon_mrgreen:

I like to write the stories for my units and the heroes.  :smile2:
I work also on an armybook for my army. In this specialised armybook for the Guards Army Corps are no new or special rules but I like to have an armybook especially for my army! ... ok, there is one new unit of Hochland in it and I will report about it soon! :icon_mrgreen:

At the moment I work on a militia regiment but it is not very funny to paint in the heat of the summer.  :biggriin: I hope I will get some of them ready today! :icon_mrgreen:

... and now it is time for more terrain:  :biggriin:
