2 more points.

Well I played a Napoleonic game at the club it was alright, but I was not really in the mood. No worries I was all set up t play Donnybrook but Tim was double booked so I let it slide. My mistake I should have confirmed with him earlier in the week and I did not so It's as much my fault as anyone's. I also forgot the blessed camera so no AAR either! Struth! Man's a Laggard!

I did manage to get 2 extra points of French line Infantry done for Donnybrook and a mounted officer on the Saturday. So As much as I choose to beat myself up about Sunday at the club I just can't really. So here is a picture of all the French I have finished so far for my "Queen Anne's War" period Donnybrook games. I have another unit of cavalry on the paint table at the moment so expect that pretty soon as well. The Second Picture shows 5 points worth of troops (3 Regular Infantry, 1 Regular cavalry and a cannon with crew). I will continue to build them up so that I have more variety. Don't forget the Native Americans which can go on either side, or even both sides if I choose. Not much of an update but there you have it for today. Expect more of the same on Thursday as I finish another cavalry unit.

Thanks for looking, all the best Clint.

  1. Very cool there. And in 15mm scale to boot! At least you got out of the house though.. can't say that I did much of that this past weekend ;)

  2. The number of figures soon mount up and the latest infantry additions really make the backbone of the force I suspect. You must be very pleased with the rapid progress you've made with these.

  5. It takes so many 15mm to get points. A 76 point army seems like a Herculean task to me.

    Nicely done Clint!

    1. Thanks Anne. For Donny Brook you only need a hand full of points so is not such a huge task.

  6. I keep forgetting these are 15mm they are so pretty the daffodils on their bases really bring them to life.

  7. Lovely work Clint! Ive just started a couple of figures for this and have hit the wall. I'll have to give them a go when the spirit's up but thanks for the inspiration!

    1. Yeah you have to get in the mood for it. I am lucky that these are all from a stalled project so cost me nothing but still I need to be in the mood. Thanks Curt.
