Well after 9 long weeks of painting my Nine Years War corps is done. As part of a larger project with my wargame club: i am painting Germans in the service of France.

I used figures,very nicely sculpted with good animation and if you are into this period i recommend them highly. A these few issues i did have with the figures to keep in mind.
     When buying a battalion pack make sure you check them as the mix of musketeer/pike/command and grenadiers seem to be random, Random to the point of wondering if their packing dept is a monkey in boxing gloves! which as we at the club are using warfare miniatures  Beneath the Lilly Banner  rule set,you would think that they would know what figures you needed to make up a battalion?
    Pikemen,some of these posed with only a single cupped hand to balance the long pike on isn't good enough to stand up to wargaming,even in the gentlest hands.

     Cavalry, the troopers need to be drilled and pinned or araldited as the underside of the troopers is a "V" shape and the saddle the sit on is rounded.

All this said they are really good figures which i have enjoyed painting.
