Another and indeed the final recycled post from the challenge.
We have here 3 units of Gendarmes with French flags and mostly made up of Foundry figures, I have to admit to pinching the colour schemes of a number of these wholesale from James "Olicana "Roach whos Italian Wars collection is frankly fantastic.
The balance of the figures were made up of ebay purchases of unknown origin on Warlord plastic horses with Perry horse heads and armour from their MAA plastic set, I didn't use their horses as they ,while lovely, are just too dynamic and tall for the venerable Foundry Gendarmes. I have to admit that I think the Foundry Gendarmes are the best of the ones I have painted although the Old Glory are also pretty good and for the price can't be beaten. Ive got one more unit to paint , a right dogs dinner of manufacturers but once I've finished them I might photograph all my current Gendarmes together.
The first three photos show the conversions.
All the best
