Here's my entry into the AHPC9 for this week, lots of War of the Spanish Succession goodness!
I've been painting like a demon the last couple of weeks, 10 minutes here and 10 minutes there.
And I've got this lot done, If only I could paint mine as quick all year round!!
Theses are once again for his nibs next door, von Postie, the evil one.
He has a Pirate collection that he bought from Reject Fran before he buggered off back to Ireland. Postie wanted some Government troops to add to the collection.
I chose the 22nd foot circa 1708 for him, as they were stationed in the West Indies at the time.
8 x Muskettmen
8 x Musketmen, 1 x Leader and 1 x Drummer
8 x Musketmen, 1 x General, 1 x Drummer, 1 x Standard bearer and handpainted St Georges flag.
Which was actually and old French flag painted over. I wanted to paint the cantons yellow,
but Postie wouldn't let me!!!
Another 8 x Musketmen
The rest of the 7 Officers, including the blue coated Guvvnor himself
The mounted Guvnor and his bodyguard
So all in all we have 43 foot and 3 mounted. Which should give me a total of
245 points! I wasn't going to base these, Postie was going to do it himself, but after working out
what I'd loose points wise I based them up for him for free!!! For Free!!!
My luvvly Minion, fellow Reject Lee gave me an extra 2 points for the flag, the
generous soul that he is! Taking my total to 247 points, this leapt me up the chart to the
dizzy heights of No 11.
