My Finklestein Regiment - part one

During my last On-Line Build, there were a number of posts over on The Notables yahoo group about different Finklestein (or 'Fink') regiments and even a couple of painted examples. I wanted to join in and paint-up a regiment but as I was partway through The Legion Irlandaise On-Line build (see this link for details), I thought it better to wait until July. So here it is. My latest On-Line build a Group of 'Fink' Dwarves.

However it was a post by Elton Waters also on The Notables that got me thinking.....

For details go to this post.

Question One;
What Race is the regiment?
Answer; All Dwarves.

Question Two;
What Models?
Answer; Eight Alternative Armies Dwarves - I have chosen a mixture of Dwarf codes to base my small regiment on. Most are from The Princess Julianna (LEU 03) set which is currently on offer at Alternative Armies.

Question Three;
What is the State known for?
Answer; Mining - or in particular Ore Mining

Question Four;
What colour scheme?
Answer; I decided that I would use my old school uniform colours. Blue blazers and grey trousers. After all the choice was up to me.

Question Five;
Hackles or Plumes?
Answer; At first, I was not going to add plumes, in fact I had cut off the small Shako decoration found on The Princess Julianna Regiment. However, well see my later posts.

More to come.

Excellent start Tony.

Finks in particular, and black powder dwarves in general are all so very splendid!
