New French Units arrive!! The Oleron and La Couronne Battalions

Posted on October 7th, 2017 under , , . Posted by

Finished 2 more units for my War of Spanish Succession project.  I’m rather impressed with my progress on this project. I’ve been humming right along. If I was a little more focused I could probably get two units done a week.  I’ll have to se…

The Royal des Vaisseaux and La Sarre Battalions report for duty

Posted on September 1st, 2017 under , . Posted by

My on going WSS project has two more battalions added to it. The Royal des Vaisseaux and La Sarre.  The nice thing about these two units is their coat and cuff colors are exactly the same.  The flags are the only things that distinguished them.  Below are some photos I took of them.  The flags have been hand painted.  Again the colors all come from Robert Hall’s book “Flags and Uniforms of the French Infantry under Louis XIV 1688-1714”.

A new 28mm figure for the Barrios unit.

Posted on August 11th, 2017 under , . Posted by

So like I did with the last unit I painted, I painted a 28mm figure in the same style as my 10mm unit I just completed.  Someone commented on the last post if I was going to do a mascot for each 10mm unit I did.  I like the mascot idea.

Took a crack at painting a 28mm figure for the WSS

Posted on July 28th, 2017 under , . Posted by

So on a whim while I was gearing up to paint my next unit of 10mm WSS figures, I decided to paint one 28mm figure that would match the unit I was painting.  I’m not much of a 28mm painter as I have a hard time with blending, shading etc but I thou…
