I painted some 28mm Arquebusiers De Grassin, plus I discuss the WAS/SYW French light troops rabbit hole I jumped down, and made flags for.

Very nicely painted! I liked the account of the other light units, as well. One could almost have a brigade of them.

Those are very well done.

The Minden Miniatures line (held by Fife & Drum Miniatures) will be compatible with Cran Tara. They have Legion de Hainault light infantry and Volontaires de Saxe cavalry [ link ] as well as Austrian Grenz.

Well done. Nice looking figures.

I've had an eye on those Eureka figures for a good while. Your painting looks super, congrats! Keep posting your progress here, and I might drag myself into the Cran Tara figures as well … lol.

Cheers gents!

ColCampbell: I had not seen the Legion de Hainaut Figures! Thanks for the heads up.

GamesPoet: I will post progress, unfortunately don't expect much from this project soon. I'm currently unemployed and finances are tight!

You really need to check out this book. It covers a lot of the units mentioned by you.

What a fun regiment. They turned out great. Between the colours and their uniform, they're quite the riotous bunch.

I really like the flag you produced for Volontaires Etrangers de Clairmont Prince. I'll be adding your blog to my feed reader for sure


Great brushwork.
Always impressive.

Hey, Stephen! Nice work. I've got those, too. Plus the mounted dragoons.
