28mm SYW French Infantry: IR14 Poitou





 

I painted this regiment in 2018 but it was subsequently sold. http://nigbilpainter.blogspot.com/2018/12/syw-french-ir-14-poitou-both-battalions.html

Thus the need to paint it again for my own army. The flags are from Dave Morfitt and I cannot recommend them highly enough. The shading looks a little severe on paper but when applied to the figures they look great. Plus they are free. We just need to encourage him to do all the flags for the French army.

28mm Wars of the Roses – Men-at-Arms plus Percy and Montague




Red and black livery usable for either Percy or Montague retinues.

Happy New Year to all. Three units of billmen using the same plastic Perry box (the Archers box) but with the bill arms. Red and black livery.

28mm SYW French Infantry: IR25 Limousin





 

I have painted this regiment twice in 15/18mm and three times in 28mm. It is my favourite French infantry regiment of the WAS/SYW and I think that may well be because of the flags. These are from Dave Morfitt and are fantastic.

Note that black cockades were normal for the SYW but white for the WAS. I prefer the white for aesthetic reasons. That completes 6 battalions for the ten I plan to have in this division.

28mm SYW Hessian Infantry: IR7 Leib Regiment





 

I painted these two battalions back in October 2017 http://nigbilpainter.blogspot.com/2017/10/hessian-leib-regiment.html

but I am now doing them in my new style with new style flags. They will be brigaded with IR11 Prinz von Anhalt, as will their grenadiers. Eight battalions for the first division of Lieutenant-General Gilsa.

28mm Wars of the Roses: Archers (5)



 

Now three more units of archers – livery of red and black.
