From AndrewS: 28mm French & Indian Wars Infantry and Marines (98 points)


Andrew shifts gears back to the 18th century with these wonderfully painted French & Indian Wars infantry.

From Andrew:
The next batch of this weeks submissions are 13 French Infantry from the AW Miniatures range these are part of a fairly substantial commission I have agreed to complete and 6 Marines that I agreed  to paint for AW Miniatures display board. 

The infantry represent the Bearn Regiment, wearing the white jackets while on campaign in the French Indian wars, they are in a mix of uniform as befits the adaptations made by the men in this period. The standard bearer is carrying a hand painted colour made by myself as a little extra for the client.
The marines, well I don't have much to say about these at all, they were a complete pain in the arse to paint and I am truly glad they are done.

Beautiful work Andrew. I like the mixed nature of their uniforms and that hand-painted banner is lovely. 

These lads from Bearn and beyond will give Andrew 98 points.
