Vive l'Empereur! A few more Light Infantry for my French Napoleonic Army

Amongst the odds and ends of Del Prado pre-painted 25/28mm figures that I had in storage, I found enough figures to form several more French Light Infantry units.

The figures were intended to be used in a small diorama of the fighting around Hougoumont, hence the odd-looking 'firing upwards' poses. Once based they didn’t look too bad and they will fit in fairly well with my existing Napoleonic French Army.

      Thanks very much for your kind comment.

      What pleased me is that half of these figures could have just ended up 'left' in storage if I hadn't had a proper sort through of what I had.

      All the best,


  2. Very nicely done, nice poses and nice paint job!

    1. Phil,


      I can't claim much credit for the paint job on the figures, although I did tidy them up and re-paint the bits that needed doing.

      All the best,
