Not sure I can call this a painting diary - as I'm only starting it in May. But nothing is normal anymore...

Some of the my recent painting has been more WWI French - mainly as I have been reading the book Catastrophe which is about 1914, and is very aptly titled!

My WWI forces are based at 1 stand per company, for GWSH which should also work for 1914 by Great Escape Games


Tirailleurs Sénégalais - most of a regiment, need 5 more figures to make the last two stands. I also need to work out how many MGs they would have had, and then which figures would work for these - Hotchkiss tripod MG, with crew in jackets not great coats (I'm assuming I will need to do some adapting of headgear).

These guys where quite uncommon in 1914 with only around 6 battalions in France - which would make these figures about half of the troops deployed. Later in the war far more troops were deployed from Africa, which around 200,000 Senegalese troops deployed.


Dragoons in their highly arcane crested helmets, at least they had khaki covers, rather than been bright silver!
At the back are some mounted Magister Militum Dragoons


French line infantry - Magister Militum figures

These are the total of my French 1914 troops - most painted a while ago!


This is 3 regiments of infantry, along with divisional artillery and commander, also here are Corps level troops, more 75s and the dismounted Dragoons.


The other French troops, 155mm guns, more 75s, mounted Dragoons and the Tirailleurs Sénégalais

Beautiful Forbes.
Have you been to Musee de le Grand Guerre? The Senagalese get a huge section.
Thankfully.
Also, a very grim painting of them in the snow...

Thanks, mate.

Not been to that museum (not been to France for many years, and I guess not going anytime soon...)

Great link, to a great looking museum.

Renaissance Irish and English



Painted these up fairly recently - the Irish at the front are a wide mixture of codes, including some of the new figures. The Gallowglass at the back right are all the new figures, and very dynamic they are two. In the middle are some English Longbows.

These have already had several games - all remote video games!

Very nice, I painted up some galllowglass myself recently to pad out some medieval infantry (they work well enough for earlier periods) and was eying some of the Welsh and Irish in the range to add too, though I think they're probably a bit too light.

They're lovely figures though.

Thanks both

That they are. The gallowglass would certainly work for quite a bit earlier - the Bonnachts could be used as well, but as you say they don't have any armour.

They are my normal black base coat, vallejo oily steel, then a touch of silver to highlight. I think they have come out well in the photos, due to my new photography light (a fairly cheap one designed to be mounted on a camera, but works well just stood on the table for minis)

Flags

Added flags to a number of stands of ECW Covenantors  Pendraken flags, but not Pendraken figures) - then realised I needed to paint the white edges. so also touched up the edges of a few others
