Field of Glory: Armored Might

Posted in Miniatures with tags , , , , on August 2, 2016 by Sean

With a renewed interest in Field Of Glory at my FLGS, I’ve returned to my Hundred Years War English force. It’s fun to get back to 15mm and all the heraldry for the army. Old posts feature the rest of the army; these battlegroups constitute the final units for the army, except for the camp and commanders. Like almost all of the rest of the army, they are from Old Glory 15’s miniature line.

The English force is designed to represent the army that fought the French at Crecy in 1346. The commanders will be Edward III, King of England; Edward of Woodstock, the Black Prince; and Thomas de Beauchamp, Earl of Warwick. Those will follow soon.

These pics are the English Knights and the dismounted Men-at-Arms.

The Knights were fun to do, following the heraldry of the lords who actually fought at Crecy. A good mix of color, though the English seemed to favor red, white, black, blue, and yellow. They of course fly a banner of St. George. Doing checkers on 15mm models was not easy, but they came out pretty nice.

The dismounted Men-at-Arms are similarly armored and marked. All the 4-base battlegroups have a standard, including the standard of Edward III, The Black Prince, St. George, and the one here, the banner of Thomas de Beauchamp, the army’s Marshal at Crecy. This gives the army more color and variety, plus makes it easier to tell battlegroups apart on the table.

Napoleonic Generals

Here are some of Napoleon’s generals, based for Field of Glory. This is part of a client’s continually built army.

The generals (from left to right) are Soult, Moncey, and Ney, each with a valet/bodyguard/subaltern.

The single-based models represent command pips; the client wanted models instead of counters on the table.

Napoleonic Cavalry

Here are a pair of battle groups for the Napoleonic army I’m doing for a client.

First are Hussars, some of the most ostentatious cavalry I’ve ever done. Green coats and vest, red trousers and cuffs, collars, and plumes. The other are simpler, just Guard Lancers wearing the Polish style.

Napoleonic Battle Groups

Here is a selection of Napoleonic soldiers for a client. The rules set used is Lasalle. The miniatures are 15mm, from Old Glory. The size of most Napoleonic armies (in this case for the Peninsula Campaign) means the army is just massive, with 10+ Battle Groups, including infantry, cavalry, and cannon.

I’m not very familiar with the Napoleonic era (at least as a gamer) so painting and organizing the units was a bit of work. Napoleonic soldiers were clothes horses compared to almost every historical models I’ve painted before. I tried to achieve authenticity for the units, even if they aren’t accurate as far as plumes/epaulets/sashes, etc.

Continuing with the American Armored Rifle Platoon for a client’s army from Flames of War, I feature the M3 half-tracks. Simple olive drab color scheme; a lot easier than German equivalents, certainly.

My most recent work has been US Armored Infantry for a client. He wanted the standard uniforms that would allow him to use them in any theatre (Early, Mid, and Late War).

More to come.

Waffen SS Panzergrenadiers

This is a selection from a Waffen SS army for Flames of War I’m working on for a client. The army is all wearing  Waffen camouflage smocks and helmet covers.

In addition to Panzergrenadier squads, I’ve included the Commander (with his cameraman!), 2nd in command, and a pair of MG42 machine gun teams and a Panzerschreck anti-tank team. More to come.
