Well although I had aimed to completely retire last December I'm still working, mainly to be able to continue to buy loads more of Franks excellent Minden Miniatures.

 These are some pics of the completed Normandie infantry in the display case, standards and flock still to be added, but proof at last that we are up and running again. The drummers were a pain but once in the grove they came out ok. (Please excuse the Jason and argonauts in some pics)
 The two opposing Regiments living harmoniously in the cabinet, when the next Regiment is completed ( another Albion foot unit)  I will have to find another cabinet or send the men into secure quarters.

A close up of the drummers, don't look too bad!

  I thought I'd start on some of the characters, so at left we have General Morbier, as you can see still on the painting table hence the background. I'm plannin on finding a coach that I can paint up in Comyn household colours for the General.

Foundry figures for those that are interested.

These pics show Albions General McLean almost ready to lead the Regiments into action, in the background is the Col. ( as yet unnamed) of the Normandie foot.
So with luck and a fair wind the mojo is back and we can at last see the armies starting to mobilise for real.


  1. Excellent -looking forward for more!

    Retired -more time for painting and playing?

    3 links to T. M. P. threads dealing with 18th C. carriages/ coaches.


  2. Thanks for the links, loads to think about.

  3. You might want to check the RSM95 range of figures for generals that are compatible with your nice looking Minden figures. The Foundry style is very different from the elegant Minden style. Some of the Holger-Erickson Swedes from Tradition might be compatible with Minden and RSM


  4. Hi,
    the Colonel at the rear of General McLean is RSM, I do have a few and they are v.nice. The Foundry are mainly for some of the characters. I've alos recently bought some Jackdaw from Old Glory which are v.similar to Tradition.

  5. Lots of nice-looking figures there!
