From RayR Donnybrook - 25mm French/Irish/Rebels (385 Points)
Anyone heard of Donnybrook before??
I've just finished basing these fine looking fellows up today, just in time for the finish
of this years Challenge.
I've already got the English army, painted up by previous Challenge contender and my pal Loki.
So I needed some European troops for them to fight, as well as my Moroccans but who, the French, the Irish Jacobites or even some Rebel troops for the Battle of Sedgemoor???
Well?........Why not all three in one?
In the photo above we have the standard Bearers for the French regt La Marche, the Jacobite regt the Earl of Clanrickard and finally a generic flag for the Red regt in Monmouth's Rebel army.
From L to R, Hero, Officer, Ensign & spare Officer.
4 x Jacobite/Rebel Grenadiers
A French and a Jacobite/Rebel Drummer
A group shot of all the Characters as well as the 4 x 12 figures Muskeeter units
So all in all there are 77 figures!
Giving me 1 million points.......
Well ok, 385 then and not a Selenite in sight!
And that, my friends, ends my Challenge for this year.
Ah, the shadow of Challenge II stretches long and far! A 385 point bomb in the final hours from the progenitor of point bombs, Mr. Ray Rousell. Well done Ray!'
This is a wonderfully done force of floppy-hatted fellows. I like that you've gone with a sampling of three different contingents to face off against your English. I think my favourite of the group are the French pikemen, though the drummers come a close second.
Great work Ray and thanks for bashing out these fine fellows for our last day of the event. 385 points will double your original target quite nicely - Congratulations sir!
Until next year, Ray...
