2 Warfare Battalions...After

OK, so after two years I've finally given in to having a section of the FORUM specifically set up to discuss painting techniques, display examples, show your latest projects and chat about this vital part of the hobby. Manufacturers please feel free to post up your sculpts, ask questions about what the gamers are after and generally promote your work.. no charge! Painters, please also feel free to post up your work for comment and critique. I can't promise the unreserved adulation characteristic of some other fora but I would hope you'd get constructive and measured comment!

Here's the other 2 bases of Andy's excellent dragoons

And a shot of all 3 stands

Just need to add a flag to the officer nearest the gabion.

Barry, any idea when will the horse-holders be available ?

Very nice Bob!
Does the officer think that by turning his back on the Williamites he won't get shot :lol:
Cheers

Very nice indeed. More like a diorama than a wargames unit.

Just one question, do they always count as being in cover? :)

Bob, horse holders on the way in the next wave or two.... as an interim an open handed pikeman is a useful substitute

Hadn't thought of that but the standing pike man with his hand down by his hip would work quite nicely IMO

yet another great horseholder substitute is the Dragoon with musket butt on ground reaching towards pouch. Drill out carbine/musket and Bob is your proverbial uncle... Bob :wink:

Doing him myself right now for a unit
