28mm Perry Plastics FPW 1870: French Infantry (2)


I've done a third battalion and made a change to the flag arrangement. Previously I just had the flag on the second battalion (as was historically correct) but now I have added flags to all battalions. It is a question of what looks good to me and 'looking good' sometimes has to trump what might be historically accurate. The notional regiment has turned into the 50th Regiment too as I have decided to press on with this project and paint eleven battalions for this army. The mounted officer is Marshal Canrobert but I will be using him as General de Brigade Montmarie.

28mm Napoleonic Russians: IR Kazan


Here are two new battalions for my Russian army. I've done four battalions and I showed these a year ago (Tchernigovsk and Staroskol Regiments) so we are progressing with the second brigade. I choose which regiments to paint based entirely on the flags and these are from Flags of War.

28mm ECW Royalist: Horse regiment of Prince Maurice

Again here we have figures from 1st Corps as mentioned previously. I decided to do a horse regiment belonging to Prince Maurice as, although he is less dashing that his more famous brother Prince Rupert, he may well have been a more able general. He also had an independent command at times. I'm not sure if I will continue this project in 28mm or not.
