Off the painting desk today is battalion #1 of the 4th French Legere Regiment. Without the fancy, multi-colored plumes of voltigeurs from many legere regiments, the 4th looks a little ordinary. To provide a bit more elan, I opted to field the carabiniers in bearskin and the voltigeurs in colpack. Another good addition to the French cause, n'cest ce pas? Figures are Front Rank.
A few surplus carabiniers in bearskin and voltigeurs in colpack remain in The Lead Pile. Two each are being painted and pressed into service to retrofit the already mustered, first battalion of the 2nd Legere Regiment. The shako wearing flank companies dismissed from the 2nd with then be repurposed as chasseurs in another French legere battalion.
