I've just painted 1st Battlaion 36th Ligne for my Peninsular War collection.


It's not the first French Napoleonic unit I've painted, of course, but it is the first one I've owned. I hope you approve.

More pics here:


Next up, the 2nd and 3rd battalions of the 36th.

Olicana the only one who should be approving is you. We observers from the TMP have no such right over your collection. Pls remember that fact. ;-)

As an observer I must sayyyy… they look fantastic! Well done! (and how does it feel to own a French infantry unit pls do tell!)

I'm a bit of Francophile, not to mention a Bonapartiste, so it feels pretty good.

Well they look great and now you have 1 more French unit than I have

Very nice!

FWIW (and usually not much) I heartily approve! I for one look forward to this project taking shape.

Really nicely done. My preference is for a darker French blue but as these are yours so long as you are happy that's all that matters.

Thanks for the kind words.
