After the slogfest to get through the Russian Guard Cossacks, I thought I would try a good ole French line unit in their brand spanking new 1812 uniforms. 1st up, the French 17e Regiment d'Infanterie de Ligne. I have just about finished up the elite companies and command, with 12 more fusiliers waiting in the wings. Here are some WIP pictures:
I cheated and bought the flag from the Flag Dude at this year's Siege of Augusta. It's actually one of his 15mm flags, but he intentionally makes them oversize, so I thought it worked quite well with the larger Der Kriegspielers figures. Though I enjoy making and painting flags, I must admit I rather enjoyed not having to do so for this battalion.
