Part one of my 9YW French army arrived! Thanks to Kevin for the painting.
The observant amongst you may notice a familiar image as the personal banner of the general.

Those look absolutely cracking !  :-bd
He's done a super job on those.

I've noticed the personalised banner.....and I know it's your 'avatar'.....Do I win a prize ?  ;)

I was going to say, "Golden Arches?" - but the background would then have to be red.  ;)

Nice work.  :-bd  30mm wide bases?
I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.

IMHO a quick line of colour on the white edges of the flags will improve the look of flags

Yes Infantry 6 (2 ranks of 3)  and Cavalry 2 on 30x20mm bases, Battallia commanders on 30mm rounds, Cannon on 30mm x whatever fits and generals on 40mm rounds.

IMFFHO you're quite right.
I have not the pleasure of understanding you. Of what are you talking?

Thanks chaps will hunt out some pens to touch up the flags' edges

One of my all time favorite periods, just due to the wonderful array of uniforms!!! Yours look stunning!!!

Did I notice the Cuirassiers du Roi wearing helmets and breast/back plates? Love the idea, and just may ahve to add them thus in my 9YW HOTT armies.

Please keep us posted as I always love seeing armies of the period.


I have only done a few of the elements for the French, but am anxious to get back into working on them. The grenadiers were converted from musket men. The Man in the Iron Mask from a peasant figure with a late Roman knight helmet head.

Yes my Cuirassiers are wearing their cuirass - no fun in them not!

Thanks for your kind words, I will certainly add pictures as each batch arrive.

Loving the man in the iron mask!
