28mm SYW Lieutenant Generals for the French and Hessians



 



So progress is slow but I am getting there on these SYW armies. The top picture shows the Lieutenant General of the first French Division, the Chevalier du Muy and an ADC with telescope (both from Black Hussar). He has two maréchal de camp, comte de Vence and comte de Chabot commanding his two brigade totalling 9 battalions. Both these figures are Perry conversions.

The bottom picture shows Lieutenant General Gilsa with an ADC (a Foundry figures and a Black Hussar figure). He is ably (one hopes) assisted by Major-Generals Toll and Bischausen and this division consists of eight battalions. One figure if from Perry and the other Black Hussar.

Both these divisions are now finished.

28mm SYW French Infantry: IR18 Touraine






Happy New Year everyone.

Looking through my blog (a useful aide memoire) I see that I painted this regiment in April 2010. The fact that I'm doing it again suggests that I like the flags and facings and, indeed, that is how I chose what regiments to paint when I work on a French army.

This project will consist of 18 French battalions and I'm about 75% finished. The next regiment will be Haynault which is an area today that straddles the French-Belgian border although in the 18th century it was mostly in France. The northern part was in the Austrian Netherlands.

Lovely flags from Dave Morfitt at his Not by Appointment blog.

40mm Prussian Infantry: IR37 Kurssell (2nd battalion)





This is the last of the flagged Prussian infantry units and I wanted a fusilier battalion to go with the pink guys of IR40. This is a mix-and-match unit of figures from Front Rank, Trident and Day of Battle with converted heads mostly from Sash & Saber though some are from Front Rank. The fusilier caps from S & S are huge though. Nonethless I like the colour combinations and the grass green flags are from Dave Morfitt of course.
