Languedoc? No, La Sarre!

I needed a company of La Sarre Grenadiers, and these Languedoc regulars stepped up. They exchanged their blue waistcoats for the red of La Sarre, and being true Continental Grenadiers, agreed to grow the requisite mustaches.

Here are the La Sarre Grenadiers marching onto the Plain of Abraham. Note the red and blue forage caps, too.


If I stay on schedule, the two companies of Regulars will join the Grenadiers this weekend.

Time for a reality check; to complete all the soldiers needed for the Battle of Quebec at Recruits in September, I have to varnish 30 figures a week for the next 3 weeks. With the major repaints complete now, it might just happen : )

Stay tuned!


  1. The shootin' hasn't started, yet.

  2. I wasn't aware the French had units with red coats. Very interesting.

  3. They need longer "Moostachez". They look Freddy Mercury right now.

  4. Not that there's anything wrong with that. . .

  5. Superb re-paint, very good work sir

  6. Thanks, Adam. I can't wait for John to read my mind and make everything I want : )
