    I’ve finally finished my 28mm Papal St Patricks Battalion (nothing to do with the one in Mexico for the US reader) done with Gring 40 figs.

    It was a very short lived unit, just being around for about a year in 1860, made up of Irish Volunteers fighting for the Papal States in the Risorgimento.

    It’s a really unusual uniform and a joy to paint, sadly it never fought as a unit, most men never got the uniform and the flags are unknown, so there is a large splash of rule of cool with this unit but with the Commander being long lost Uncle Myles O’Reilly 😉 I couldn’t resist.

    More pics on the blog post with more info in the unit, figs and painting.

    Sorry I’m late, don’t generally trawl the other spheres of interest too much; interesting unit though.

    My 12% Irish heritage tells me I don’t care much for random units, but if I need some exercise in mind expansion, theres plenty afoot.

    cheers d
