Title: Start of Huguenot side project
Post by: Leman on 24 August 2019, 01:11:47 PM
One of my regular opponents is well smitten with FOGR, and asked if I would be interested in starting a small Catholic or Huguenot army for the French Wars of Religion. I said that as I was building a Spanish TYW army Id give the Huguenots a whirl. As it happens I have a couple of Warmaster reiter units available, so have painted up the first one to take its place in the FOGR starter army. Other units will be culled from Pendraken (particularly Daves Elizabethans) and a couple of cuirassiers units my mate passed to me as a freebie, which are Old Glory. So here are the first reiters:

Indeed, very nice. I am a big fan of armored guys riding around shooting pistols and infantry with long pointy things!!!! Look forward to seeing how it progresses!

Likewise. I possibly have to adjust the resolution on my computer to get the best view of these but from what I do see, these are very good! :-bd

(e.g., the pistol detail on the extreme left  :) )

These look terrific Leman!

Although! I might add a few small lines of highlight on the flag as it is quite large, would make it pop out real nice!
