From RayR - 25mm Donnybrook French (30 points)

Making his debut in the main part of the challenge, we have that smuggler of budgies, Mr Ray Roussel!


Blimey??? Can't believe its February and I'm only just posting my first entry proper into the Challenge!!! Bad me!
And although there's 12, 25mm figures sitting looking pretty, I'm afraid only 6 can count as the other 6 were started back in September.
Now I'm trying to be a little clever here as these 12 Foundry figures which I picked up on Ebay for a song, are painted up to represent both a French and Jacobite Irish regt for my Donnybrook excursions. So I can play games in both Ireland and Flanders, as well as my main theatre in Tangiers.

So I make that a sad total of 35 points! But I'm just glad I'm up on the board at last!




Are you sure he's a badger, not a skunk? Something a bit whiffy here. Hmmm, I've worked out what it was - he was hoping I wouldn't spot that 6 x 25mm foot figures @ 5 points each is a total of 30 points, not the 35 he's trying to blag! I should screenshot that just in case he tries to weasel out of it by editing the post after I've adjudicated *grin*
Nice work on these Ray and it's good that they can do double-duty.
