15mm French Marshals and Generals

Today I finished basing John's French commanders. These 25 figures will command his divisions, corps, and army.

Only the artillery stands between me and 800 French and minor nation infantry!

Thomas Francis Meagher

Raven Banner Games continues to impress me with their cold-weather 28mm ACW line. This sculpt portrays Brigadier General Thomas Meagher, the Irish patriot who raised and commanded the Irish Brigade.


Meagher has always been a fascinating character to me. I walked the route of the Irish Brigade at Antietam, and the site of Meagher's death is not far from my home.

15mm French Guard Cavalry

John will have a whopping five regiments of guard cavalry in his French army! It was a lot of fun to paint these, and I went all out, taking my time on every fine detail.

Grenadiers a Cheval

Next up are the French generals, and they will complete the mounted element of John's French army! Today I priming artillery and crews. Can the infantry be far behind?
