Soldiers of Neukirch

As promised a painting that I thought a few of you might get a chuckle from…

(Remember: click on the pictures below to see a slightly larger version)

Soldiers of Neukirch Uniform Plate, 2010, Acrylic on MDF, 32x40cm

(hmmmm... the colour seems a bit off.. and faded...? I need to figure out how to take better pictures of paintings...)

This is a housewarming present for my friend, John, who has just finished building himself a new house – complete with new, spacious game room! Long time followers might remember John as the guy who’s run some fun 18th century games set in “Luteland” and “Neukirch” – what I have created here for him is a uniform plate for some of the Regiments of Neukirch that participated in the Battle of Gassen au Damlau.


  1. Musketeer Livgarde til fot?
    Some kind of Danish/Norwegian I gues?

    Nice painting by the way - a cool and personalized present.

  2. Yes! "Luteland" and "Neukirch" are nominally Scandinavian (or Scandahoovian, as John sometimes calls them). I think more than a few of John’s Regiments are modeled after Danes.

  3. What an excellent painting and gift! I think the colors look ine (but I know they might look different here than they do in poerson).
