More French



Hi gents,
A few pics of this weeks new arrivals Foundry French in dress uniform , you may remember me painting a battalion of these some weeks ago these are now mixed in with the figures painted by the war office.
The majority of the french will be in campaign uniform but I read somewhere that the french marched into Spain as if going on parade full dress and bands playing.

 




Victrix (Thanks Dean) Miniature painted by Dave Jarvis saluting the new arrivals.


Foundry figures painted by me and the war office.
 
The Grenadiers.
Best wishes
Willie

  1. A fine body of men, Willie.

    Although I suspect they didn't look so grand when they left Spain!

  3. Great stuff I like the painting style of war office. I sent them an email a few weeks back in order to have some Sudan figures painted but have not heard back.
