As ever the bases are from Warbases but the guidon I made using a downloaded image from the Project SYW website. Next under the brush are a French infantry regiment, Bouillon. More on them when they are done. Six down and four more underway, so almost halfway through.

The Colonel-General's Dragoons
My SYW collection expansion project continues to progress at a steady if unspectacular rate. The latest unit readied to join the fray are a six figure squadron of the French Colonel-General's Dragoons. The figures of course are from Foundry/Casting Rooms Miniatures' range, which I recognise are a taste some will never acquire. I used the Command pack and the Troopers Charging pack for this unit. I may at some future point add a further six, time will tell. See what you think anyway ~

Expansion project progressing a pace there Mr. BReplyDelete
Steady but unspectacular, that's me now.Delete
Steady works for me David! Another fine unit of cavalry and the guidon is rather spiffing:).ReplyDelete
Thanks SteveJ, much appreciated.Delete
Its good to see you adding to your SYW armies David, well done.ReplyDelete
They will never be as numerous as yours though.Delete
Keeping up a steady pace is good! Big armies can be fielded with a little work, often. Nice dragoons.ReplyDelete
I like the sturdy fellows - especially the robust swords …. Important for that pose. The figures have a lot of nicely raised detail for the brush to catch.ReplyDelete
I must agree there Norm.Delete
Fine looking fellows David …ReplyDelete

All the best. Aly
