From JamesB: 28mm Seven Years War & French and Indian Wars (495 points)

From James:

Long time since my last entry, in between looking after my wife pre-op and a weeks holiday post op I did manage to pick up a brush for an hour or two. I offer you my next entry 3 units of SYW French Cav, these are all painted as Heavy Cav as I hoped the off white uniform with red cuffs is a great look. Of the 3 units 2 are Front Rank, again great sculpts. The third unit are Crusader miniatures my first painted from them, I have 3 units of Infantry to paint next from them. 

The next lot you should all recognize as this is the forth unit of Foundry Hussars I have painted during the challenge, these are painted the same as the last lot of Hussars in blue and red.

Back to the F&IW for the next lot I have 8 more civies and 12 Canadian Militia - French Irregular troops from Galloping Major. I took a few figures with me to Norfolk to paint and the last lot of figures are the result 7 Forest Indians from Conquest.

I am well on target for my par score and I want to see how far passed the 3000. Hopefully that will give me my par target for next year. Next on my painting table is 2 units of Grenadiers and a unit of Musketeers plus 12 French light troops.

Fabulous work James! Wow, three unit of cavalry PLUS a passel of foot figures!? Simply amazing.

This impressive collection will give James 495 points. Again, astonishing work.


  1. ecky thump man, do you have a bucket of ice next to the painting desk to cool the bristles?

    These look excellent again


  2. Amazing work for an hour or two James! ;)

    Stunning work as always :)

  3. Those are all lovely, but the skin tone on the indians is just great!

    Just a cheeky wee couple of hours work? If only it was that easy!

  4. Oh James these are wonderful, what a great entry Sir.

  5. Very nice figures (and a lot of them!). I like a lot the Indians.

  6. Beautiful work and I'll echo Juan, the Indians are my favorites. The shading in their muscles looks great.

  7. cheers all, it was a nice change to take time painting the Indians and nice to see you like the results
    Peace James

  8. Well done James and I see it adds hefty weight to your already impressive point total.


  9. Superb work - I especially like the Indians and near to 500 points in a single submission -wow!

  10. Bloody Hell James.
    Please tell me what motors you use on your brushes.
    Superb stuff buddy.
    All that cavalry.
    Great points haul...

  11. Great stuff, some collection of figures


Thanks for your comment! As long as you're not a spam droid I'll have it up on the blog soon. :)
