My last unit painted in 2014 and my 1st entry into this years Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge. In fact its the first unit I've painted for myself in a couple of months!! These fine looking fellows are the regt La Marche and they earned me 42 points and pushed my up to the dizzy heights of No50 in the standings!!!
The regiment quite obviously is another of my Nine Years War French units, and are once again based up for the Beneath the Lilly Banners ruleset. The regt is one of the 6 French regiments that were sent over to Ireland and were present at the Battle of the Boyne. The other being Forez, Merode, Tournasis, Famechon & Zurlauben (which I've already painted, here) The plan is to paint one more of these regts up, but I'm not sure which one yet, it really depends on which one has the best looking flag!
La Marche were commanded by Colonel Armand-Charles de Gontaut, the Baron de Biron, After they left Ireland, In 1691 they were posted to the Alps and Nice, then they were sent to Flanders were they fought at the Battle of Neerwinden.
The figures are from Essex minis and the flag is from the Warflag website.
