Getting back to blogging after a few months away with some recent projects. Up here's my Compagnie Franches de la Marine from Conquest Miniatures and Warlord Games.

Those are really nice figures. I bought those back when Conquest was still distributing them…many years ago.

What rule system are you looking at using them in?

Figures look good too!

Thanks for sharing

I'll have to get some of them. I'll have to choose to game Monongahela or the Plains of Abraham, as those are my favourite French and Indian War Battles.
They look really nice! French uniforms in the war were cool.

Mostly been playing Muskets & Tomahawks but also looking to try Sharp Practice and Song of Drums and Tomahawks.

Actually I don't think they look good at all. Coats look wrong. That hunting frock is all wrong for the period,and the facial hair is flat out wrong. Further there is no evidence Colonial Marines wore such fatigue hats.

Their muskets are missing the bands too.
