Wars of Louis XIV figures

I've been investigating figures for the late 17th century for my new blog and have come to the conclusion that Donnington Miniatures 15mm figs are the best range for the job. I want to visually recreate the view of the period as shown in all those brilliant battle paintings that are quite panoramic usually showing miles of rows of tents and thousands of tiny figures milling about so 15mm should be about right to get that effect. The Donnington miniatures range cover all the relevant troop types and are from what I remember full of the right type of poses for pike and shot warfare - that is fairly static. Photos and review soon on my other blog.
