    I had planned on expanding my French units to I’d end up with a brigade of 60, which would be nice and impressive. But I’m not very tidy and have misplaced quite a lot of my Crann tara French cavalry. I’m missing 9 in fact to finish the last two regiments. So the brigade became a humble 36 instead.
    Regiments, Mestre de camp Général, Cuirassiers du Roy and Talleyrand.
    It’s led by Antoine Chrétien de Nicolaï, who really led a division of infantry at Minden, but so far my French army isn’t big enough to require a divisional leader. So until a second French infantry brigade is done, he’ll lead my cavalry.
    All these are Minden miniatures with Maverick cloth flags.
    Except for the Antoine Chrétien de Nicolaï figure who is really a Montclam figure from Crann Tara.

    Talleyrand is the lastest complated regiment, it had stood at 6 painted for like a year or more.


    Very nice, you have probably already said so forgive me if so, but what are the backdrops?
    Are they model train ones?


    It’s a picture I downloaded.

    I take the picture with just a plain brown cardboard background.  Then digitally remove the brown in a photo editor.

    I find most of my backgrounds here.



    Cheers dude!


    Not my period, but they are very pretty soldiers.  Well done.
