French Line Infantry Colours
The above figures are my officer and colours for my first French Line Infantry battalion for my Peninsular War project. I don't have a particular French Division in mind so I am making them as generic as possible, although the colours are 1804 pattern and for the 1st Bat 70th Line Regt.
Due to the fact that my figures may be used in games representing battles from 1804 until the end of the Peninsular War I have chosen to compromise. I will build 6 company battalions as used in the later French organisation but I will use bicorned troops and stick with Red pom-poms instead of company specific colours.
The figures are Victrix plastics and I am finding it quite an enjoyable exercise painting them, especially considering I only started them as opposition to my British.
