French Voltigeur

Voltigeur of light infantry. Wounded, but still more than willing to fight on for "The Little Corporal"- La patrie en dangeur!

I very much enjoyed painting this figure. The smooth surfaces on the Front Rank minis make them easy to paint, and the well-sculpted greatcoat provided a great palette for shading, lining and highlighting. I'm no fan of drybrushing except for feathers and furs!

I have to admit I still haven't decided how best to base my skirmishers- individually would be best for the "Sharpe Practice" rules (recently released by the Two Fat Lardies) that really look interesting, but I want to play "General de Brigade" as well. I'll probably procrastinate on basing them for a little while longer yet.
