The Corps de cavalerie, 1759-1760

Happy New Year!!

Well I have continued to have some time to paint and today I was able to start and finish this unit of miniatures.  This is for our clubs games of F&I War using the Donnybrook skirmish rules.  This is the dismounted portion of the unit, I have the mounted figures ready to paint up int 2015.


Check out the information here at this site for the history of the unit: History of the unit




I have always wanted to paint up this unit and I finally found someone who makes the figures in 28mm. Redoubt Enterprises is the company that makes them.  They are good figures but the faces are all the same and these are probably old molds.  Check out the line of F&I Miniatures here: F&I Miniatures



I will get some more F&I Figures in this coming year, both French and British as well as the great Indian Miniatures that are now available.




Thank you to all of you who have starting to follow me over the last 3 months. It has been great restarting my painting and learning new techniques for painting miniatures.  I still need to work on faces and particularly eyes. 

Have a great 2015 and keep tuned for more Wargaming in Sweden!!!

    1. Hi Phil! Thanks for the kind words, I have to give credit for the paint job to the new techniques I have learned from the other members of my club, it has taken my painting up a few levels from where it was!! Happy New Year!

  4. Very good paint work !

    Leave the eyes out, they don´t need them, at least dosen´t any on my 28mm get eyes. Most of the time then painter try to paint eyes the minis end up looking as Marty Feldman:)

    Keepu up the good work, looking forward to get some good games at the club, especially the Lion rampant and our Håtuma games project.

    Best regards Michael

    1. Hi Michael! Cool that is the easiest way to do the eyes, I have had very bad luck painting eyes and I agree the figures end up looking a little off with eyes that are not just right. Yes I am looking forward to learning the rules and playing some games for the Hatuma game project! I have ordered the rules and I am waiting for Fire Forge to register my account so I can order the figures!!!
