Fabulous Frenchmen

FN 73: French Young Guard Tirailleurs, marching.
Despite my best efforts it looks as if I'll be unable to complete the last battery needed for phase-one of my Prussian Army before I head overseas at the end of next week.

However, all is not lost, as Steve C has sent me some more shots of his extraordinary Hinton Hunt Napoleonics.

I've had a stab at identifying them, so apologies to Steve in advance if I've got these wrong. I'll update this post if I get new information.

FN 9A: French Line Fusiliers, marching

I've posted these up as an inspiration and reminder to myself that I'll need to crack on with some more Frenchmen when I return at the end of May.

I'm hoping to see a lot of Hinton Hunts and other vintage figures while on my travels, so I'll try to grab a few photographs!

So long, and thanks for all the fish!

converted into a Prussian!


  1. I love Steve's painting style - he makes it look effortless!

    1. Me too. I'm also in awe of his superb conversions!

  2. These are very pleasing - Steve has an effective style of painting.

    I trust your reference to seeing vintage figures on your trip is not a reference to collectors and gamers in the Northern Hemisphere!

    Safe journey.

    1. Cheers, Foy.

      All will be revealed, if permissions are granted, when I return!

  3. Great looking Frenchies, ncie job!

  4. Steve has great imagination with his conversions. Its nice too how he mixes in the DKs and Alberkens to create interesting units. Good to see his stuff on the site.

    1. Steve's work has had a lot of influence on me, Lewisgunner. Positively inspiring!
