SYW - French army: Reinforcements for artillery

Figures:  FrontRank
Scale:  28mm

Though I already posted a few pictures of my first unit several months ago, I decided to show some photographs of a second unit that I managed to finish today. So the royal artillery of my french army has grown a little bit. For the first unit hasn´t been based yet I just changed this, too. So the photos show both units. Hope you´ll enjoy them. :)

  3. Thank you very much.
    I think that the french army will grow further within the next few months. I just got a mail that my ordered figures have left FrontRank and will be here in a few days.
    In my opinion the french army is the most colorful within the SYW (though I am a fan of Old Fritz and his army). :)

  4. I like the French in this conflict, but more so across the pond in North America in the French & Indian War.

  5. Aah, la France mobilise! That´s good news, I share with you the adoration for the French army. I just got a cavalry regiment from Sash&Saber in order to be painted as French Chevaux-légers - I am still thinking, which I will do. What could you recommend me?

  6. Hi Peter,
    That is difficult to say. All of the french Chevaux-l'egers have the same uniform and all of them only joined the battles of Lutterberg and Minden. It seems that they haven't seen more action during the war. So this makes it difficult to decide. I maybe would chose an unit that has a standard in blue (de Bourgogne, de A'quitaine, de Berry) or white (de Dauphin) for the uniforms all are completely red. So a standard with an also red colour maybe would look a little bit boring. The only difference in colour within the uniforms is the colour of the crossbelt.
    I would decide for de Dauphin.

  7. Dear Mike, thank you for your advice!
    You´re right with the Dauphin regiment. I have already the Gensdarmes (in red) and the Cuirassiers (royal, in blue) - so your opinion helps me a lot. Thank you again!
