12mm Epic Scale ECW: King's Lifeguard and Prince Rupert's Foot Regiment


A new project is afoot! Well actually quite a few regiments of 'foot'. Here are the first two Royalist regiments and we will be doing 14.

28mm SYW French: Tallyrand Cavalry

This is the last of the Horse regiments (so 9 in total) which, using French nomenclature, are classified as cavalerie légère or light Horse. I will also be doing two Dragoon regiments to finish off the left wing. The Talleyrand coat of arms was red with three golden lions rampant so I have given the musician a red coat.

28mm Perry Plastics FPW 1870: French Infantry


Here are the latest FPW French infantry from the Perrys. I have painted two battalions, the first and second of a notional Regiment. The Eagle and flag are carried by the second battalion. They are nice figures but the coats are so voluminous that it's quite hard to fit all the figures on a stadard plastic green base.

I posted a Prussian battalion back in August 2021 and actually I prefer the poses of those figures although the French uniform is quite pretty. The Perry uniform quide is, as always, useful but not detailed enough concerning the kepi so I have posted here a more detailed picture of the kepi from a reproduction company in France.
