These are a recent ebay purchase which arrived painted as two separtae Confederate militia battalions. They are retored to their propoer colours as a large battalion of US Marines - the officers are French Crimean ones. I hope this unit will also find a role (possibly split into two battalions) with the Georland forces.
Two units which have been waiting part done for around six months while over things have jumped them in the queue - PFP 3s Saxon Line Infantry plus another PFP 5s Prussian Line Infantry. This finishes my current Franco Prussian War figures, with the exception of eight or so generals and staff figures.
I am hoping these will form part of the forces for a refight of some of the Georland battles, now I have acquired both some of the old TSS 122 hex tiles and a 6" hex mat from Corsec Engineering.
(George Keef's original Georland armies used 40mm demi ronde Franco Prussian War figures. If I was able to start from scratch I think I woould have gone for Spencer Smith 30mm Classic FPW figures as it is i am intending to use S Range Crimean and FPW figures, with a few ACW reinforcements - Zouaves and Marines).

Over the last five to six weeks I have been painting S Range Hundred Years War figures and have now just about finished. I previously had been painting a large quantity of Lamming Medievals. The two makers are not compatible, to my eyes at least, so the S Range figures are intended for use with Lion Rampant rules, while the Lammings are intended to use the old Lamming Campaign rules. I have very few S Range mounted figures but far more Lamming knights.
Here are some unit pictures. As ever the painting is basic (no shading, no heraldry) and some of the photos are not as good as I would have liked, but the purpose is to show these figures en masse.
first picture: mounted knights
Then the missile troops:
hand gunners - early
hand gunners - late
armoured infantry with polearms
mixed unit pole weapons
foot knights and armoured infantry

I recently picked up these figures and haven't been able confidently to match them up to listings. Can anyone help? The first figure looks Byzantine/early medieval The second Renaissance or Medieval And the last Eaatern Ancient, Medieval or Renaissance
