From KentG: 28mm Napoleonic French Artillery & English Civil War (190 points)


Those participating in the Challenge may find it somewhat encouraging that Kent is returning to work next week. ;) Perhaps the blistering pace he's set will abate somewhat. Nonetheless, before you all wipe your brow in relief, Kent has sent in another impressive entry. This time we have a full battery of Napoleonic French horse artillery and a regiment of foote for the English Civil War.


The French horse artillery are 28mm Perry Miniature sculpts. Lovely work here. Kent, are you using GW Regal blue as a base colour? The uniforms on these lads really 'pop' nicely.


Next is the beginnings of a new army for Kent - English Civil War. This unit depicts Sir Ralph Weldon's Regiment of Foote.  Note: Seventeen of this group of nineteen count as two were completed before the Challenge.


This last one I expect is for Sarah: a lusty barmaid 'proffering refreshments' to the troops. 


Another enviable batch of points earned here: 100 for the French Artillery, 85 for the ECW unit and 5 for the barmaid. Total: 190 points! Once again great work, Kent!

  2. Good to know, thanks! I'll have to give that combination a try for an upcoming unit. Some variations in an army is good as historically depots would be supplied from a variety of textile suppliers, all using slightly different levels of indigo.

  7. Wow, I hope Kent does have a job that he has to be at 24 hours a day, although even with that I do not think I would have any chance of catching up.

    Not withstanding that, great looking figures.
