RP 73 FIW English Generals




Something that was missing in my first test of my FIW Rules a few weeks back, were some Generals, so over the weekend I painted up these seven Essex Miniatures Seven Years Wars figures. I've started with the English and will paint up some French soon. The figures have various cuff colours, some will represent Generals for particular units, while some of the blue cuffed will be the CnC and Aide de Camp's.
Have a great weekend peeps!!!

    1. I should really buy shares in Essex, I'd hate to workout how much I've spent on their figures over the years!!

  4. Nicely done Ray. They'll look fine on the table I presume. I really love this "Gentlemen look" of the officers of that period. They bring Tom Wilkinson to my mind as he portrayed Cornwallis in Emmerich's "The Patriot" movie...

  19. Very nicely done Ray. We Brits certainly know how to dress as gentlemen before giving the Frenchies a good thrashing!

  24. Ray they look great and it is good to see the East Essex there :)

  25. Nice work. You certainly seemed to have solved the generals problem en masse. They look suitably dim and inbred for British generals of the period.

  26. A great painting work, Ray. They are full of personality.

  27. fine looking generals!

  28. So you painted some bullet free figures. "Where would war go to, when we start shooting commanders".

    Excellent painted figures Ray!
