Infantry of Louis XIV contribution

Another fine contribution Graillou, well done! The grey coats are, I think, just about right in terms of shade and shading; I also like the grenadiers, including the thrower (although grenades were not used in the field).

The French Fusiliers set is a versatile collection of poses, and remains a main-stay of the growing WoSS range; I have lots of these figures still to paint!

The flags suggest Regiment of Picardie, although the men themselves have red cuffs, breeches and stockings. Picardie had grey cuffs, breeches and stockings so I am not sure which unit this is meant to depict? The presence of pikemen also suggests very early War of Spanish Succession or even pre-War perhaps.

Je suis d'accord, très bien Pascal! Super peinture. J'aime beaucoup que vous avez utilisé les différents types de figurines pour cette pièce. Formidable.

Cordialement, James

Re: Infantry of Louis XIV contribution

Merci ,
En effet avec plusieurs boites on arrive a faire un régiment Français début de guerre d'Espagne
l'armée Française est plus intéressante à jouer avant la WSS sur le règne de Louis XIV ,il est étrange que vous les Anglo-Saxon préfériez la WSS :laughing: ,les piquier disparaitront en fin de WSS . oui c'est le régiment de Picardie et j'ai fait les manche rouge car c'est beaucoup plus jolie

Beautiful painting job! The infantry make a very impressive display.

Re: Infantry of Louis XIV contribution

I skimmed the responses and missed you photo Mark; they look fabulous.

It looks like you have put a sizeable force on the table already. Have you put them through their paces? If so, how did it go? Was it an historic action or made-up scenario. What rules/system do you use?

Regards, James

Re: Infantry of Louis XIV contribution

Bon travail! Bravo! Pouvez-vous nous en dire plus sur l'utilisation du pic jusqu'à la fin de la guerre ?

The 'sizeable force' is gradually growing, James! The Regiment de Picardie was the first full unit of WoSS figures that I completed and they have been joined by a number of other French and Bavarian units since then. I am playing 'catch up' with Marlborough's armies, with a fair number of units 60-80% complete and in need of finishing and basing.

I am not an active wargamer, although that is my background and 'pedigree' if you like. Were I actively gaming right now I'd probably join the hordes of Black Powder followers and advocates; I have the books, and very good they are too.
