The other day I was looking at some of the Fife and Drum AWI Continentals and noticing the similarity of their tricorn hat with that of the AWI French. So just for grins I decided to paint several Continentals in French white to see how they might look.
|Continentals painted as the French Saintonge Regiment|
|Side view - the French didn't wear tumplines or blanket rolls, but then, you never know what is worn on campaign.|
|A29, A27 and A25 from the Continental range.|
These were fun to paint and it is amazing how much difference a little paint can make to a figure. I don't have plans to paint a Faux French army, but then again, maybe I will if I want to do a Seige of Savannah game in the future.
