Just recently I took delivery of five battalions of French Light Infantry, four of them have the early Empire headgear with the side plume on the shako, while one has the later pompom on the shako.
All very nice.
The first battalion of the light infantry regiment.
The figures are from Elite Miniatures.
The figures were shipped out to “Reinforcements by Post” in Bangladesh, I know the chap that runs this enterprise and I can whole heartedly recommend them. The figures took no time at all to be painted and returned, the basing was done afterwards and the flags are all GMB ones.
All the basing was done by the charming gamers from Derbyshire.
I have another order with them which involves figures from Connoisseur, Bicorne, Front Rank and Trent Miniatures. I hope to have these back within the next month and will have them based and flagged to show here very shortly.
Over the next year there are also plans to expand the ACW, with the first battalions of “Men of Color” along with some more Zouaves. This is all just to start!!
The Napoleonics will be getting a real boost, along with WWII German and Italian troops. The introduction of Americans will be brought in as well.
