    French LOA

    I’ve started work on a new project, a French Army for the League of Augsburg period.  Currently I’m awaiting reinforcements to arrive but I had enough lying around to make a start.  The figures are mostly from Irregular Miniatures.  I did a minor bit of conversion adding shoulder ribbons to the Grenadiers.

    If it is of interest you can see the first three units and some very nice flags on my blog.

    LOA

    The work continues with progress on all fronts.  I really need to stop that and concentrate on the French.

    Regiment la Reine above.  You can see them with some Dutch cavalry and lots of Monmouth’s levies on my blog. I’ve also started work on conversions for the French Guard Battalions.

    Impressive, as always.

    I have to admire your ambition and drive with all these armies and plans.

    I have lots of plans, and regularly find the scribbled remains in notebooks and pads of paper some years later.

    I had plans for 10mm LoA armies – I love the Pendraken sculpts – and still have plans – where they are in the ranking of things to do however,  is currently moot.

    In the meantime, reading about your project is giving me my fix of LoA goodness. Keep it coming!

    Thanks Guy.

    If I hadn’t been already heavily invested in 15mm I’d have gone for those 10mm Pendraken too.  Clibanarium is a very talented sculptor.  Do check out the flags by David from Not by appointment blog I think they are lovely work.

    More soon and have a merry Christmas.

    league of augsburg

    More French this time.  I’ve realised my Jacobites need a complete refurbishment and so will the Williamites.

    I’ve added pike men to the line regiments and finished the second cavalry squadrons for la Reine and Royal. My first battalion of the French Guard bellow.  The pike stands improve the look of things I think.  Anyhow, lots to see including the Royal Italien if you click the link.

    LOA

    Photos of another five French battalions are now on my blog.  The figures are a mixture of Dixon, Essex and Irregular 15mm.  I find they work well together even on the same base.  If it’s of interest here is the link.

    Cheers Norm.  I’m well past the half way mark now.

    Of course it has led me to redoing most of my Jacobites and Williamites too as they were mainly done 20 years ago or so.  Wargame projects are like that.

    LOA

    More LOA French cavalry completed and photographed on my blog.  If you’d like to see them click the link.  The cavalry are squadrons from the Colonel General’s regiment and the Orleans regiment.  There are also pics of Fimacon’s Dragoons mounted and on foot (above).

    I’ve also waffled on about what’s available in 15mm for dragoons in stocking caps. It might be of use to others doing the LOA in 15mm.

    LOA

    My second unit of French dragoons is now complete.  After some experimentation I favour Gladiator figures on Irregular Miniatures horses for this troop type. As usual I’ve done the unit mounted and on foot. The red and yellow uniform seems to have been worn by 3 different French Dragoon units.  I think it is quite striking.

    I’ve also painted up a single unit of irregular Hussars from Essex.  They should be fun on the table top.
