Régiment Normandie - WSS

My Louis XIV army now counts two infantry regiments. Painting in 15mm is always a pleasure; it's always a surprise seeing how such small figures look great on the table.

Another addition to my Grande Armée. Again, I am happy with result of my brushwork and how great they look on the battlefield.








Napoleonic French foot artillery

It's been a productive three month period. After the dragoons, here come three pieces of artillery. Not bad at all. 










Napoleonic French dragoons

I break this 3 months silence with my first unit of French cavalry. I like these dragoons a lot. I spare any other word and let the pictures speak on my behalf.

Later Chartaginian - DBA II/32

I took a break from nappies. Ancients were calling, punic wars are planned for Easter break. Here comes my speed-painted speed-based DBA Chartaginian army. Playing with an unpainted army is stain on my honor. 

(and speed-taken pictures)

The ARMY


GENERAL and CAVALRY 
Hannibal and the standard bearer (no standard yet, lost in some box) are from Art Miniaturen. The rest is Numidian cavalry by ZVEZDA.



The WAR ELEPHANT
By Hät is the pachyderm. The slingers are by ZVEZDA.


The LIGHT HORSES
ZVEZDA Numidian light cavalry.


The SPEARS
Spearmen from the ZVEZDA Chartaginian infantry box.




The AUXILIA
Spanish scutati (?) from the ZVEZDA Chartaginian infantry box.



The PSILOI
African caetrati by ZVEZDA, the slinger on the left by Hät, the other slinger by ZVEZDA

Napoleonic French Line Infantry (last episode)

Got to the bottom of the box. Grenadiers are painted as well. I need a break, better take a pause from nappies and do some ancients. Ehm...that foor artillery disagrees.






Napoleonic French Line Infantry (episode 3)

Mesdames et messieurs, voici les voltigeurs! Quality of painting decreased in favor of speed; I want to get to the end of that mesmerizing Hät box as fast as I can. Yet, I look at them and I am satisfied. Pity I cannot find a wargame mate here in Lomé and see them vaulting on the battlefield.
