|Swedish infantry of a slightly earlier vintage 1675 - Scanian War|
To restore some balance I have selected a series of 1690s based infantry action photos which I trust also hit the mark.
|Ramsay's Scots Dutch Regiment at Neerwinden 1693|
For some reason gamers tend to always begin their collections in a new period with infantry. Is that to get a feel for the painting style or because their are quicker to get a result from?
|A very strong Dutch Brigade advances during the Battle of Walcourt 1689|
When gaming in the 1690s period it is important to get the balance right between Horse and Foot which means painting roughly one mounted model for every two on Foot.
|French Brigade moves out to meet the Dutch at Walcourt 1689|
I have done a lot of cavalry in this period but trues to my word I have done more than twice as many infantry!
|French defence including the Maison du Roi|
These shots are once more drawn from a wide selection of games and over a fairly long period of time. They reinforce the real attraction of wargaming and collecting in the late 17th century.
|Bonnie Dundee's Jacobite regulars in action in Scotland|
Rather than use nice posed shots the vast majority of these are from actual games. The figures are from a variety of collections and include the painting of Bob Talbot, Gerry Donohoe, Peter McCarroll, Dave O'Brien, Paul McLauchlin, Andy Thomson, Alan Wedderburn, Jim Masson and probably several people who I have inadvertently missed.
|Bloody Aughrim re fought at Derby 2014|
All this stuff is really getting me in the mood for some table top action.
