Marie-Louises V - War of Attrittion

Despite their apparent simplicity, these have eaten up so much of my precious painting time!  But I will not be beaten.  Last night a grinding painting session finished these 81 minis (33 of whom were painted by David Davies) barring backpacks.  I will need to paint another 18 to field 3 battalions. You'll note that I have mounted a GMB standard and two Fanions.

Below are three of the Marie-Louise recruits.  These are Warlord plastics with a mix of Warlord and Perry heads. I have really taken to this set from Warlord, and expect to use a lot more of them in due course.


  1. Commendable work, Simon - impressive output and quality; particularly when viewed with all of your projects. The Warlord guys look like a good match for the Perry set.

    1. Thanks Dean. The Warlords don't match Perry very well, being taller. However the Perry heads work great on the Warlord Bodies, and also work well on Victrix bodies, which match the Warlords very well and add much-needed variety!

  2. Don't know how you do it with everything else you have on the go, but they look brilliant!
