Huguenots in the post

But not before I've taken pictures of them!
Command group
A group of dragoons - I love the officer with the pistol
Dragoons skirmishing
I love this combo - a mounted dragoon holding his comrades' horses
I like it so much I took two pictures of it!
And after a gentle reminder, I updated these guys to have hat lace and white cravats!
These went into the post half an hour ago, so I hope Geoff is happy with the final result.
Figures are all 28mm Front Rank from their Late Seventeenth Century range and are what I would consider the best figures available not just for this period, but in historical wargaming!

  2. Fantastic brushwork! Dismounted dragoons with mounts are especially nice.

    1. Thanks Jon, although I have to give a lot of credit to the sculptor - nice sculpts are always so much easier to paint!

  7. Beautifully painted although not a big fan of Front Rank's exaggerated anatomy - they are starting to look old fashioned now compared with the likes of Empress' ECW.

    1. They are a bit sausage fingered - but I quite like that aesthetic. And it fits so well with the voluminous coats of the period. I find that 'realistic' proportions work well in some eras, but don't always capture the feel of the period somehow. I actually find Empress' ECW a bit too willowy for my tastes, whilst I love the look of their Modern range. Whatever the case, we're lucky to have so much choice available to us these days!
