From Greg: 28mm Perry Napoleonic French Infantry


Greg had originally done these Perry plastics around a year ago as two separate units for Shako. This was his first foray with painting French (being a dyed-in-the-wool Austrophile). This past weekend he basically combined the two to form the equivalent of a 32 man unit for Grand Manner style games.


I could be wrong, but from a close look at the colours it looks like this is the 3er Regiment de Ligne who, except for Jena-Auerstadt, was present for most of the major campaigns.


In rebasing this unit Greg has begun to experiment in using long grasses and other foliage to ornament the unit. Looks very nice indeed.

  1. It's a nice looking unit. Still waiting on my French to arrive.

  2. Christopher - if it is Perry French you are waiting on, you'll love them when you get them.

    My greatest challenge with the French is the drummer. As Curt mentioned, I'm used to painting Austrians, and their musicians are pretty modest. The French musician outfit makes me mental, and I definitely struggle to get the colours right...
