French General

Musket and Marshals needs quiet a few officer figures to lead the troops to victory.

I have finished a generic French officer using a JC recast one piece figure (FN224)



This is a very nice casting and had very little flash to clean.

I have not yet given him a name but no doubt something will come to mind.

I have also finished my 16 British Fusiliers to make up a 2nd Fusilier unit - the 23rd Fusiliers


The cast on flags were tricky to paint but seem to have come out ok.


I have tried to match these newly painted  figures (on the left) with the renovated ones I picked up at Oxfam on the right.

Nice work Mark. I like the way you have achieved depth in colour - especially your blues.

Super impressed by the hand painted flags.

Very nicely done Mark, I have yet to paint any British flags myself but yours are very impressive!

Hi Tony

I used a little shading and highlighting on the blue. I tried to keep it subtle rather than using garish multiple highlighting used on 28mm figures.

Thanks for the kind comments.

I am now ready to try painting a coke can flag a la WM.

I do like one piece castings and cast on flags which I agree are difficult to paint , yours have turned out well .

Cracking General figure, nicely painted.

Your Union flag looks better (more accurate) than some commercially produced items.

Well done.

They are all totally brilliant, Mark.
I couldn't decide what to call this General either!
Best regards
