Victrix Swiss etc

I have been busy with work, and the six nations, but did manage to finish the Vixtrix Swiss and put a flag on my Prussian Cuirassiers (I know its the wrong one but I dont care).

Saving Private Henri?

Italian Colonel

Italian skirmisher base

Not much to paint to be honest.

Metal colonel

Voltiguer base - very happy with these

And the grenadiers

"Toberones are on me boys!!"

These were assembled by Will in Belgium

Flag by GMB

Do you like the horse Iannick? Foundry paint pallet on that one.

The wine was an excellent Burgundy I enjoyed with a fine Cuban cigar to celebrate completion.
Hope you enjoy the pictures.
Victrix are fine figures but I just dont enjoy painting them to be honest. They can be hard work and if you dont know the French uniform, and whats meant to go where, you may struggle.


  1. I do like that horse!

    Well done Roger, that's very nice work.

  2. Yes very nice Roger! I like the Voltiguers, too.

    Say hi to Will! I enjoyed his Waterloo.

  3. Very nice looking figures. Your Swiss make a nice addition to a French army.

  4. Very nice - hope you had a nice bit of Toblerone with that celebratory port & cigar! I like your Italians too - the red facings go well on the white uniforms. Having painted a few myself now - I concur wholeheartedly with your comments about how fiddly they are. Just as well they look so good when they're done!


  5. Excellent work all round, Roger! Private Henri taking one for "The Big N" is a great looking figure.

  6. Great stuff, RTBurgundyswigger. Presumably for the next 4 weeks you will be spending all your spare time canvassing for the Conservatives?

  7. I love readding, and thanks for your artical. ........................................

  9. Unable to give you a heart. so have a reply to push up your post. ........................................
