A couple of years ago, on a whim, I purchased some Front Rank Napoleonic French in bicornes. I just like the figures, and fancied painting them up. I had been to Paris for a few days, and returned with the wonderful Musee de l'Armee in mind, and thought 'well, why not?'
But somehow, at the time, other things took over.
However, a couple of weeks ago, I decided to give them a go.
And so, I present the first battalion, 4eme Ligne, circa 1805 or thereabouts.
Really enjoyed painting them.
So will it be a passing dalliance, or is a new project born?
