AHPC6 - French or Jacobite or Rebel Foot for Donnybrook



Yep........I know my Donnybrook shenanigans is/was supposed to be in Tangiers, but in true Wargamer fashion, I've expanded before I've actually finished Tangiers??
These 12 Foundry figures were purchased from evilbay, along with many others for a very handsome price, my original plan was to only have Warfare minis for army figures for the period but I couldn't resist the bargain!


I already have a sizable English force, (pics to follow soon), so I decided to paint up some Jacobite Irish, and as I was looking back over my uniform notes I had one of those "Light-bulb" moments. Why not paint them up so they represent both a Jacobite and French unit?? Now anyone who knows anything about the Nine Years War will know that 95% of the French army were dressed in a grey coat with red cuffs. So all I had to do pick a Jacobite unit dressed in grey coat with red cuffs??
Also these will do fine with a few additions for a Rebel unit for Sedgemoor!

These and some other figures pushed me up to 43rd in the Challenge!
