AHPC VII - Donnybrook French/Jacobite/Rebel Infantry



Anyone heard of Donnybrook before??
No? Well..........

I finished and posted these fine looking fellows just in time for the finish of this years Challenge. I was very pleased as they only took me 11 evenings to paint! (If only I could paint like this all the time?)
I've already got the English army, painted up by previous Challenge contender and my pal Loki. So I needed some European troops for them to fight, as well as my Moroccans but who, the French, the Irish Jacobites or even some Rebel troops for the Battle of Sedgemoor???
Well?........Why not all three in one?

In the photo above we have the standard Bearers for the French regt La Marche, the Jacobite regt the Earl of Clanrickard and finally a generic flag for the Red regt in Monmouth's Rebel army.



The Officers
From L to R, Hero, Officer, Ensign & spare Officer.


4 Sergeants


12 Pikemen


4 Jacobite/Rebel Grenadiers


A French & Jacobite/Rebel Drummer

The troops
5 x 12 Infantry

 Phew!
So all in all there are 77 figures!
Giving me 1 million points.......
Well ok, 385 then and not a Selenite in sight!
Giving me a final position of 24th

And that, my friends, ends my Challenge for this year.

  5. That's a lot of figures in just eleven nights. And finishing twenty-fourth is impressive.
    Does the guy with the red flag die first?

    1. I worked bloody hard to get these buggers finished Alex, and yes the chap with the red flag does die first!

  6. VEry nice! This ability to use the minis as different regiments (when given different flags) is one of the most appealing things about this period (within which I am dipping a toe...). :-)

  7. I still think your stuff for this period is stunning Ray! The flags, as usual, rock and make the figures truly complete.
