Next task - more 28mm French Allies.

The best photo my phone can take - My current phase of getting the 28mm French allies back up to scratch.

I'm not into all this ipad\iphone nonsense - all it needs to to is ring and  text hence low quality photos ! Hopefully I can find my old point and shoot soon or pick up a cheap replacement.

 A new round of troops to be finished\started.

96 Hinchcliffe Saxons(Reg du Roi, Reg Von Low, Reg Prince Max, Reg Prince Auguste)
14 Perry French Hussars (10th Hussars)
24 Minifig French Legere (8th Legere Regiment)
24 Hotspur French Line. (84th Line Regiment)
24 1/72 Confederate Cavalry
15 or so 28mm casualties.

A real mix of manufacturers and why I love this army - build up over 25 years from different sources and countries. Front rank are nice figures but once you paint 24 you get bored, I like the variety different manufacturers can bring.

The time frame to do this is 2 - 3 weeks. Some big nights will be needed but its why this army is in this state - I've only done a unit here and there over the last 4 years - I need one big hit and another third of the task will be done.

February will be a crap month as I'll be in French territory perfecting my pigeon conversational skills.

No doubt by the time February is over you will be ready to begin conversing in earnest in the Gallic tongue...

What make are the ACW cavalry?
