Hello mates

new post about 30 years war French:
https://spanishleadpainting.blogspot.com/2022/06/30-years-war-french-regiment-lyonnais.html


As I continue with  my 30 Years War mood,  I painted part of the regiment Lyonnais in the last few days, and then "only" the musketeers will be left in order to have the unit completed and playable.



I chose Regiment Lyonnais because it was one the first French regiments of XVII c. and it fought under the command of Philipe de La Mothe, and then Le Grand Condé in the field battles of Santa Cecilia and sieges of Lerida/Lleida from 1644-47 during Franco-Spanish War of 1635-59, all won by the Spaniards.

I used a wide variety of miniatures ; Warlord Games, Bicorne, TAG, Horcata/Empress, Steve Barber and one Old Glory, I think they don't look bad together despite being quite a few manufacturers mixed in the same base.

The flag is from Warlord Games, and the white French flag was free downloaded from the internet.





I will slowly paint the musketeers, that are also from several manufacturers, Perry,  Foundry,  Avanpost, Warlord...



By the way, the battles of 30 Years War in the southern front, in the forties of XVII c. are superbly explained by Pierre Picouet in his book:



Cheers

Re: Chema1986 XVIIc.Gallery:29/06/22 Capitan Alatriste

Hello guys,

new post:
https://spanishleadpainting.blogspot.com/2022/06/capitan-alatriste.html

This time I have painted a miniature that I have special fondness for, "Captain Alatriste", well , a proxy of him by Anno Domini 1666 miniatures.

The Polish company Anno Domini 1666, produces excellent metal miniatures set in the 17th century, with various factions including Poles, French, Germans, Spanish, Ottomans, even generic fantasy ones, for their skirmish game, which I have not tried.

 In my case I bought some French king's musketeers, some Spanish ones, and some loose miniatures.

For those who do not know, Captain Alatriste is the main character in a series of novels by the prestigious Spanish writer and member of the Royal Spanish Academy of Letters Arturo Pérez-Reverte.

The novels deal with the adventures of a Spanish soldier in the first half of the 17th century, born in 1582. The novels are very fun and historically accurate, and the protagonists face Dutch, Venetians, Turks, French, English, pirates and against other swashbucklers, in Madrid and other places in Europe, Alatriste and his mates participated in the siege of Breda in 1625, the battle of Nordling in 1634, or the battle of Rocroi in 1643.













                                        Viggo Mortensen in the film about Capitan Alatriste (2006)

I personally will use the captain alatriste miniature as the leader of my Warband for skirmish games like Donnybrook or a custom-historical version of mordheim.

I painted him mostly with Foundry paint triads, and then an ultra matt varnish by Green Stuff World.



Cheers!
