The collection so far!

It's only been a few weeks since I started this project but things have progressed very well and the collection now stands at 7 regiments of horse (68 cavalry) 4 mounted Generals, and 82 foot. The foot includes 2 full regiments off pike and shot (35 & 31 figures) plus dragoons and a unit of 'commanded' musketeers. I hope to complete a third pike and shot regiment this week, to be followed by a couple of Sakers and crews which will give me enough to fight a small engagement under WRG rules.

This morning I assembled the horse units together for a few shots now they are all on matching bases. I'm delighted with the overall impression, bearing in mind that I wanted an 'old school' look and feel to them all. It's a bit more of a pain doing the bases with filler and paint, but it's worth the extra effort. I have ordered quality printed flags for all the units, should here this week. The unit front centre will retain it's wonderful hand painted flag of course.

First up, the horse:











Now the Foot to date, I'm rounding the dragoons up to 10 figures.
