I really love my SYW French army. They rarely win but they have colour, presence, panache.
Anyway, on display:
19 infantry battalions, 8 cavalry regiments, light troops, artillery etc:

The van, guarded by light troops:


A mounted dragoon brigade, leading the way, while a dismounted unit prepares for trouble:


The heart of the army, infantry brigades of line & grenadier troops, march on:


Elite cavalry ride on with some style:

Marshal Soubise looks proudly on:

The rear guard of a gentlemen's cavalry brigade & a line infantry brigade & the etranger infantry brigade:




Far too many figures but you have to like the flags!
Figures are 1/72 plastic & 20mm metals.

A great looking collection.

What a fabulous collection, no wonder you can forgive their failings on the field of battle.

Lovely work. Happy to see some Swiss stiffening.

Very nice! My French SyW aemy has much the same battlefield experience but I love them as well – mine are 25/28mm, 15 infantry battalions, 5 (soon to be 8) cavalry regiments, five batteries, 2 light infantry units and various commanders/hangers on – I have Chevert and a few others on command bases; I also have red-coated Irishmen and blue jacket Germans
