Being the third series of pictures of Spencer Smith Miniatures

Without any comments (on my part), let's get on with it...But for one thing: thank you for the very kind and thought provoking comments. Don't forget: these wonderful armies were collected by Jan and complements  should really be addressed to him. Pay him a visit here on his Napoleonic revolutionary wars blog called ça ira.


-Ranking 86th in the French army is ROYAL BAVIERE.
As with the next unit the colours do not fit. I think
Jan used some artistic license at the time.-

-French 106th LOWENDAHL ?-

-Ranking 39th is BOURBON, identified unmistakeably by the colours.-

-ROYAL COMTOIS (59th) might fit the bill here.-

-No4 ROYAL? No6 ROYAL ETRANGER? No18 ANJOU?
I'm afraid the standard is to generic to help identify this unit.
It is French cavalry, isn't it?-

- Les troupes légères pour la petite guerre:
les CHASSEURS DE FISCHER.-

In the meantime I've decided that the Grenadiers de France will be the first unit to get a make-over. The miniatures will be de-based,  given a clean with a soft toothbrush and soapy water, flaked paint on muskets will be removed and touched up, bases repainted, faces repainted and finally re-based according to a very cunning plan...more of which later...much, much later...

And there's more, yes, really, ....
Comments, remarks, suggestions, ...you know the drill.

Happy gaming

  3. A nice collection of classics there. I've got a regiment or two of Spencer Smiths, and they have a charm all their own. I'm looking forward to seeing your new (old?) recruits after refurbishment.

  4. Yes, looks like French cavalry, the surest way to identify regiments are the unique lace patterns on the saddlecoths, if they had been painted..... so yes could be any number of blue faced red "royal" regiments not earing bearskins.

    Looking forward to seeing the carefully, oh so carefully refurbished and reconstituted regiments and how they will all fit together. (I would be tempted to make "brigades".)

  5. Unit sizes seem perfect for "All The King's Men"...
