    Hello folks,
    Whike i am working on the french cavalry i decided to start the regular French infantry.
    The Regiment of Royal Vaisseux was present at the battle of Fontenoy , and they will be part of the vignette, i will have thw Maison Du Roi including the French and Swiss guards, the Guard cavalry andnregular cavalry including Marshal.de Saxe and King Louis XV on horseback.
    The uniform was white coat, royal blue cuffs and red vest, this uniform was modified after 1762 for the whole French infantry when the introduced the heavy reforms after the disastrous performance of the French Army in 7 YW.
    The figures are from Sash & Saber, the heads are from Trident designs. 20190130_110936.jpg 20190130_104251.jpg 20190130_104232.jpg

    I have added some shades on the vests and highlighted the red using Scale 75 red signal.
    I have finished one of the coats, used a mix of vallejo panzer aces desert tan and dab of light grey-brown.
    Washed with citadel mudd and highlited with base color for the coat adding scale 75 war front series "cremweiss". 20190130_133439.jpg 20190130_133442.jpg

    WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW!!!! Fontenoy !!! My planned, and due to a long illness, abandoned project. I envy a bit, but I will definitely watch very closely. So many types of troops you plan on, amazing mate!!! Good luck, I wish you as a creator, as well as us, the observers :). And you also have a strong hand and patience ;).

    Cheers Borek :)

    That must be an amazing experience, just to think that so many years ago that Battle took place there, it is just a lifetime experience.
