Garrison Regiment von Beck Reporting For Duty

Garrison Regiment No. 1, von Beck

The first four companies of the Garrison Regiment No. 1 von Beck were completed over the weekend and partially based. I have to dry brush the stands with a light tan and then add Silfor Tufts and Static Grass to complete the basing.

The von Beck regiment is the seventh Hesse Seewald regiment that I have painted so far (eight, if I count the von Arnim regiment which is actually a Faux Russian regiment).

There will be an announcement soon about a treaty between Hesse Seewald and Hanover, in which the latter has agreed to provide several regiments of mercenaries to the Hesse Seewald army. There will be a stipulation that the Hanoverians may only serve in Hesse Seewald and may not be used in any territory outside of Hesse Seewald. As such, the Hanoverian mercenaries will be used primarily to provide protection for the Homeland while the regular army is out on campaign.


  1. I like the look of this regiment. The single colour for the uniforms is quite pleasing.

    1. Yes, I was pleased with the way that the regiment turned out. I wasn't sure at first, but after painting a sample musketeer and grenadier I decided to go ahead with it.

  2. Very impressive unit Jim, as already said the single colour is effective
