Marechal de Camp

It's surprising what you can accomplish between feeds at odd hours of the night and day.
This figure is my first post-baby creation. He's the general officer from the RSM French range; I'm sure you all have examples of the figure in your collections.

I have painted him as a Marechal de Camp (or Brigadier) with the idea that he will be my French and Indian War "de Levis", surely one of the more attractive personalities among the French fighting for New France.
I have painted him in the standard version of the French general officers' uniform, straight out of the relevant Osprey.
I will do a command diorama eventually representing Montcalm and an ADC or two.

A fine looking fellow indeed!

Yes, inded. Nice work!

Yes, he does look very good . . . but how long before you follow Der Alte Fritz's example and paint up a couple of Eureka "Teddy Bear" armies for young Erin?

oooh, well, I'm painting as an off again, on again project a saxon and a swedish army for the GNW for my nephews...

Perhaps she can have a danish one.

I've actually painted a Danish GNW army . . . and I really liked the uniforms and the flags. The gray with various facing colors really looks good . . . and the Guard with their yellow coats look splendid.

The Danes are a very nice army.
