France: Regiment No 70 "Flandres"



























This is a Walloon regiment of the French army, the french speaking part of the Belgian population. I like them very much, especially because my relatives lives there and each visit begins with a warm welcome, a good cuisine and a impressive landscape.
Et voilà: Flanders, called Flandres is newly integrated in the French ranks.
The figures are Sash&Saber troops of the serie "French and Indian War".




















Deployment: in front the Swiss Lochmann, Flanders and, in the background, Auvergne.

  6. Excellent stuff, Peter !

    I was wondering when somebody would get around to posting good pictures of the S&S F&I War French, for some reason nothing was ever forthcoming on their website. I prefer my Frenchmen without turnbacks so they can stand in for previous wars, but they certainly show well here.

    Regards,
    Steve

    1. Thanks, Steve - the S&S French are very practical without their turnbacks on the breast - this let me take them also for other armies. They are really nicely done. I am currently painting some Frontrank-miniatures, that´s also a big joy to paint!
      Regards,
      Peter
