My latest WSS work

I've been SLOWLY working on some Swiss for the French Army.  They are almost totally done and here are a few pictures.  The pictures of the flags are for the Pfyffer regiment and these flags are from Maverick Models. Once I've got them fully based up I'll add a few more.








These next few pictures of of the Bourbon regiment that I just reflagged.  I had GMB flags on them and I've switched out to The Flag Dude.  I really like his flags, especially the cloth (material) ones.  The just have a nice look and feel to them.





and finally, here are a few pics of the finials that I'll be putting on the Swiss unit.



One of the many reasons I've been slow to paint lately.  My son graduating from high school.  I fear that I will have even less money available as he enters college in the fall.

  6. Excellent painting! And congrats to your son's big accomplishment. My eldest son has just one class left to grad from college & an $80,000 school debt! My next project is Clare's Regiment in the service of France, aka "Wild Geese." But can't find any maker who's figures have cuffs on the jacket and lapel facings. The IB's five regiments had different color cuffs, vests, & lapel facings for each regiment. Clare's was yellow. Do you know of any maker whose figures would fit this bill? Now what would really blow me away if if they had a bagpiper not in a kilt. The IB was led into battle by bagpipers, and at Fontenoy the piped "The White Cockade" to tick off the English.
