Mustering A New Regiment

With the big game weekend at Ayton now looming (in a good way) at the end of the month, it's time to return to my 28mm 18th century forces and get everything ready for this year's adventure.

I am making some modest additions to my Medetian and Fleurian armies (which inexplicably put their centuries-old differences aside and unite to fight foreigners in Henry Hyde's on-going campaign!)

The first of these is on the workbench at the moment - the Savoy Regiment of the Savoy/Piedmont army of the mid-18th century, which I am increasingly using as the inspiration for my Fleurian forces. These are figures from Crann Tara, with a couple of Minden battalion gunners waiting for their gun. They've been blessed by the talented brush of Dave Jarvis, who previously painted for me the La Marine regiment who are lined up behind them. When the flags arrive from Mark Allen, and I've added the gun and finished the basing, these units will combine to make a rather stunning brigade for action in Grenouisse at the end of April.

I'd better get cracking then!

  3. Those are rather pretty and will look stunning when fully flagged and based. As Robbie said, DJ is a very talented chap! I look forward to wiping them off the table at Ayton! ;)

  4. Dave,

    These look really nice. Working away on Regt Monferrat myself at present. It's a golden age for the army of Piedmont Savoy! :D
