Start of something "big"

I have long looked at Pendraken 10mm figures and wondered whether I would - considering I have tons of unpainted Adler 6mm Napoleonics that I am gradually painting my way through.

Well I thought I should get a few 'test' packs to see what they would look like and how easy they were to paint.  I have wanted to do the War of Spanish Succession after being inspired initially by the atmosphere and paintings at Blenheim Palace.  This was further encouraged by the wonderful publications of Charles Grant in his Refighting History series.

So a test unit was embarked on a French one was the result.  I'm pretty happy with the way it came out and was very easy to paint and base.

Plans are a foot for Ramilles!

    1. Don't hold your breath Jonathan. The plans are huge - just like all my other plans :) - and I have a lot on the go.

    1. I am rapidly falling in love with them because of the scale of what can be achieved. I have a few 'testers' going for various 10mm armies.
