Back to the 1859 project to add a regiment of French Zouaves to the roster. Figures are the 'old' Old Glory 15/18mm models manufactured and sold by 19th Century Miniatures.
The 2nd Zouave Regiment is fielded in three, twelve figure battalions for a total of 36 figures. During the 1859 campaign, the 2nd Zouaves were a component of MacMahon's 2nd Corp in the 2nd Brigade of the 2nd Division.
While another French infantry regiment for the 1859 project is on the painting desk, a number of other units are in work too. Likely next off the painting desk will be two battalions of Austrian infantry for the 1799 project. Rather than more Austrians in helmets like the previous offering, these lads will be mustering out in the old casquet.
