15th Century French

One of the side effects of a really good game is that it sets off my wargames butterfly...
This can sometimes lead to me dropping what I am working on to pick up a stalled project or diving head first into a shiny new one.
I have been good this time and scratched that post game itch by taking a couple of photo's of my 15th Century French.
They currently stand at three units
More of a contingent than an army...








The Scottish Archers of the Guard.


The rather English looking flag is based on the Durward (Scottish)Arms and indicates the presence of a certain Quentin Durward.
If you haven't watched The Adventures Of Quentin Durward starring Robert Taylor, you are in my opinion missing a treat.








The first unit of infantry.








The second unit of infantry.


All the flags were made by me using Photoshop although I have since over painted the French Royal Arms and will probably do the others in time...its the butterfly in me.


All the best.   Aly

  1. Those are mighty fine, I like the grassy bases, a lot nicer looking than the static stuff. What is it may I ask?

    1. Hi Phil...
      My basing technique involves a cunning mix of static grass and K&M flock.
      I shall post a mini tutorial in your honour.

      All the best. Aly
