The War of Spanish Succession... More Cavalry.



Greetings...


I have now based up two more cavalry units for my French army...  one French and one Spanish.


The French Gendarmes De La Garde...


This unit saw action at...
Ramillies...1706
Oudenarde...1708
Malplaquet...1709







The Spanish Cavalry Regiment Toulongeon.


They fought at Ramillies... alas I know none of their other actions.






Both these units were painted by Art Master Studio...

As with the previous two units they only needed a tiny bit of touching up then the leather goods were varnished.
Again I am very pleased with these and they have certainly saved me a lot of time.


The standards were made by me based on the Robert Hall plates from the Pike And Shot Society.


The miniatures are as always Front Rank...

The bases are from Warbases...

So... There are a couple more infantry units on the painting table...plus some French Command... Hurrah!


All the best   Aly.

  4. Very nice additions, and always nice to see some Spanish allies in there. Their presence is quite often lost among the French and Bavarians.

  6. Lovely pair of units, coming thick and fast, maybe I was being pessimistic saying 2020 for a game after all!

  7. Lovely stuff. Really like those flags...all PhotoShop work?

    1. Thank you Mark...

      The flags are a combination of scanning,resizing,mirroring (if necessary),redrawing (where necessary) and a fair bit of recolouring- I am not a great fan of overly shaded flags so this is where a lot of the time goes...
      All done using Photoshop.

      All the best. Aly
