Six Battalions of French Greatcoats
Four 1st battalions with Eagle and the tricolours are by Maverick Models and two 2nd battalions, the fanions are by GMB. Took just over a week to complete these, I used the vallejo black wash to give a bit contrast to the greatcoats and then drybrushed with the original grey colour. The figures are by Old Glory and I'm not too impressed by the quality or variation in poses. Only two poses for the fusilers and it was tough to paint the faces with the muskets sticking in the way. In the end I gave up and just painted a skin wash over most of them. I will probably use these to denote raw or untrained battailions.
