    Hello Folks,
    I am starting a new projecr, the Battle of Valmy which took place in 1792, one of the first Battles of the French Revolution who saw the Regulars "Les Blancs" and volunteers " Les Bleus" together against the Austrian forces .
    For this diorama i am annimg to hace a 12×12 wood base and recreate the frenchbside of the Battle positions.
    I already finished 2 volunteer grenadiers today.

    Thanks Kev, there are lots of regiments invved, so i will have to do a meticulous research on the facings and the new flags for each.
    As for the windmill, it is the main piece, i will have to see if i can get my hands on one, but i doubt they make it for either 28mm or 40mm.
    Cheers

    Here is a table of the uniform facings , the first chart is for 1791, at the time of the battle of Valmy (chart 2 ) only regimets N°49 and up changed their facings.
    I circled the line Regiments who took part at the battle of Valmy.
    It may be useful to some of you for reference.
