Today Ray submits a unit of Space Marines from the 'Imperial Hangnail' Chapter followed by a gaggle of unicorn-riding dryads playing harps...
I know, not a bloody chance. Yep, more 15mm Nine Years War French donkey wollopers.
I have been a busy boy with the brush and I've finished yet again another NYW unit, once again its a French Dragoon regt, the Royal Grammont Dragoons, who fought at 3 major battles of the Nine Years War, Walcourt, Namur and Steenkirke.
You'll all be very surprised to read that the figures are from Essex miniatures and the flags are from Maverick Models. i like this flags its not the colour of the unit, which makes a nice change for cavalry unit in the period.
My next entry won't be a NYW one, but don't panic, there'll be more NYW stuff on the way soon!!
Yeah right. I'll believe it when I see it Rousell.
Okay, so what's with that poor lonely nag in the background? Perhaps one of these poor Shining Sons of France fell off drunk a mile back...
Seriously though, this is beautiful work Ray. The buff facings of this unit are set off quite nicely with the vibrant red of the coat and trousers, very chic. Question: Are you doing separate horse holder stands for your dismounted dragoons or just going to leave them as is?
This fine regiment of Grammont Dragoons will give Ray 94 points which places him within striking distance of his 600 point target. Nice one Ray!
