Dutch 80YW Infantry Commands


Over the lat couple of years I have been slowly building a Dutch Army for the 80YW or the Wars of Independence from the Spanish. The Army is almost completed with only a light cavalry regiment and another artillery battery to paint, which will finally complete the set. The latest additions to the Army are four more command stands for the infantry regiments. Two brigade commanders (four figures) and two sub commands (three figures). 


The majority of figures are from the never ageing Wargames Foundry ECW/30YW range, however the mounted officer, the officer standing next to him and the standard bearer on the same base are from another outstanding range called Bohemian Miniatures.  

The figures have all been painted by my good friend Leroy Simpson and the flags and basing have been completed by me. I have based them basically for any set of rules but currently we are using a great system called Baroque. 


Bohemian Miniatures.

Thanks Jonathan. I know have nine command stands for the Army and for a little tabletop candy.

Beautiful models. Every time I see you post something about this period it inspires me to re read the "Captain Alatriste" novels.

Cheers

Hi Vinnie!

Aren't they a great little set - perfect for command vignettes & stands - and Leroy doing his usual great painting and basing. With this period including ECW and TYW with many units you can just make up and swap out different command stands. Spanish Tercio next?

Cheers, Doc

Hi Doc,

Thank you for the great comments...old Leroy certainly does a sterling paint job, he is the Master of the North. Not sure what is next...maybe a Tercio or two or maybe the French or ......

Really great work. I especially like the general in cuirassier armour standing with his fist on his hip- fantastic figure, wonderfully painted.
