On parade: 40mm Napoleonic French

f_volts_20190226_180125

This is the second of two ‘On Parade’ articles featuring my 40mm Napoleonic figures.  This time we look at the French. These are a mixture of Perry Miniatures and Sash and Sabre figures.

The shako numbers indicate that these men are from the 85ème Régiment d’Infanterie de Ligne. I picked this particular regiment because back in 2005 my son and I were invited to participate with the recreated 85ème in a reenactment of the Battle of Waterloo.

Here’s my entire French contingent – a unit of grenadiers, and another of volitguers.

This is the last of the Napoleonic postings for ‘On Parade’. Next time I’ll be featuring  something completely different from my wargaming collection. See you soon!

  1. Lovely work again, and the recreation with your son adds a personal touch that deserves a 40mm rendition. I really like the Perry figures and was nearly tempted myself, but realised that to venture into a third Napoleonic scale would mean I would invariably end up looking around for a 40mm scale Hougoumont to go with the other two I have got.

I hope I've given you something to think about - please do leave a comment with your thoughts or reactions.
