Hessians of the Von Knyphausen Regiment, Part I

In addition to the British red coat force I've been painting up to face off with my colonial militias and regulars, I have begun work on a group of Hessian grenadiers. I am representing Regiment Von Knyphausen, with its black facings and white backed miter caps. The figure is Foundry, and has a the ubiquitous slightly cartoony look to it, but I quite like the sculpt.

The figures are nicely detailed, yet simple enough to be a bit of a quick paint-up. Based to match redcoat force, they will be the even cleaner looking counterpart to the cleaner looking army, and provide even more contrast to my mottled and mismatched colonial army.
