28mm SYW French Infantry: IR29 Bretagne





I have never painted this regiment before so I am pleased to have them sorted now. Indeed these two battalions complete the French Division for my SYW army. The French division has ten battalions and they will be joined by a Palatine division of about 8 battalions, half of which are done.

The flags are by Dave Morfitt and I cannot recommend them highly enough, as I have said in a previous post.. The shading looks a little severe on paper but when applied to the standard poles they look great. Plus they are free. The figures are from Black Hussar of course.

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.
