France: Regiment Champagne











Finished now the long silence on my blog for almost 3 months, dued to professional, daily work, which absorbed all the energy for painting miniatures.
Here I have my second regiment, coming out of the fabulous Trident manufacturers, the French of the FIW and SYW range, painted as the old regiment de Champagne. I agree, that the homogenous white coats, trousers and gaiters are a little bit boring to paint, but the typical cut of them are nice and also to make one of the oldest and traditional regiments of the French army.
Enjoy the pictures, I will let follow some more post in the near future.

    1. Thank you, Alter Fritz, for your words - only the white coats, gaiters and trousers are a little bit boring to paint after the 18. figure...

  6. Lovely photos capturing great atmosphere. The firing line is great, excellent 40mm figures.

    Are all your infantry units 36 figures?
