Work continues on the 1799 project as one of my 2018 goals is to field a FRW game later in the year. While enough figures are present to field combatants for a smaller game, such as seen in the Montebello 1800 games, larger battles require more troops. To do that, French infantry and Austrian infantry are moving into the painting queue.
Off the painting desk are two more, 13 figure battalions of early French infantry. The figures are from Campaign Game Miniatures with the exception of the AB Miniatures' mounted officers. Unlike the two battalions fielded recently, the grenadiers in these two battalions are wearing bicorne.
I really like the look of CGM French in bicorne. While not as crisply cast as AB, these are fine figures in their own right and fit in well with the more expensive AB. I wish CGM offered early Austrian in casquet. That would be cool!
