General Montcalm and the Regiment Chartres






The French brigades got some reinforcements, now led by General Montcalm, a magnificent miniature of Trident. Even if Monsieur le General fought mostly in Northern America, I could´t resist to order him to place him on the peak of this beautiful Regiment of French Musketeers, also Trident.
I painted them as Chartres.


The figures are build of several parts to assemble - so you are free to change and turn heads.
