My New Years resolution is to concentrate on getting my SYW armies to a point where I can play some sizable games as well as some FIW skirmishes. The first newly painted unit is Regiment de Lally, the most junior regiment in the Irish Brigade of the the French Army.
|The regiment also fought as part of the Irish Brigade at Fontenoy where in the intense battle seven members of the extended family were either killed or wounded fighting for the French king. As usual, the flags are by GMB.|
|Having fought throughout the War of Austrian Succession, the Jacobite Rebellion and the Seven Years War, the regiment was absorbed into Dillon's Regiment in 1762 as part of reforms within the French army.|
|I made sure I had officers with colour facings that related to the units that already have painted.|
|No prizes for guessing the surname of this dapper officer of Lally's Regiment|
|Another one of my favourite poses...'Pot that officer over there, old chap. There's a good fellow.'|
|In keeping with skirmishing the SYW, I recently finished tarting up these Redoubt Roger's Rangers. I had purchased them second-hand at a swap meet several years ago, but at that stage they had only been undercoated in black.|
Until next time!
