Redoubt F&IW French Marines - WIP

A small unit of  French Marines which were ordered along with the Highlander Grenadiers from Redoubt Enterprises. These are nice figures, as are the Highlanders. They are sized on the larger side of 28mm and a good match for the Foundry SYW figures. They've been given the usual Minwax Tudor Satin stain treatment over a basic block paint job.
The figures prior to the stain/wash. They are sans greatcoats and in marching order with native style leggings.
Once the stain is dried, they'll be sprayed with Testors Dullcote and given some highlighting.


  1. They look brilliant! Boy, the Dip really adds a lot of depth, doesn't it? I know it certainly improves my final product.

    You say they fit with Foundry SYW. Having never seen the Foundry SYW range, how about fitting in with either Old Glory or 1st Corps?

    1. Thanks, Jonathan. I don't have any OG or 1st Corps SYW/F&IW at the moment, but will post a comparison shot of Redoubt and Foundry in the next post. Best, Dean

  2. great contrast with the rich sky blue color used on these figures.... lovely!

  3. Excellent work Dean, this blue is really beautiful...

  4. More great work Dean, I love the colours in this unit.
