Imperial Germans VI

1st Grenadier Regiment is now good to go, with supporting artillery battery and uhlans from both the Bde Cavalry Squadron and 2nd Cavalry Bde:

These were the last of 2014's Germans to roll off the painting conveyor belt:

So time to move onto 41st Infantry Regiment...

Valois light horse

A small unit (in Hail Caesar terms) of Valois light horse.

I might add the odd crossbow in time to allow them to be used as mounted crossbowmen.

Perry Minis painted as part of the Constable of France's retinue c.1415 (flag to follow).

Twenty First Velites - Heklion Faustus

'Velites!' Fautus cried out so as to be heard above the thunderous battle. At the summit of the stairs, the hair fled from his face in streaks of white as the wind tugged at it, and his eyes flashed sapphire-blue in the reflected flare of the distant lightening. It was easy to follow men like Faustus, and Faustus knew the importance of never being afraid to demonstrate that. He raised his drawn gladius. Come the assault, he would sheath it again, but for now it served  solid purpose in cementing his image and invigorating his men. 'We blood them now!'

The last of the Valois Knights:

And three more Border Horse to allow the nine man unit to work properly under Hail Caesar Rules:
