Does anyone have photos of the Bicorne 28mm French Carabinier figures in the bearskin headdress? Believe it not but finding 28mm carabinier figures in the bearskin is pretty difficult as not too many manufacturers make that figure. Most concentrate on the later armoured uniform.
I'm trying to compare the Bicorne figure to Front Rank and Eureka. I like Eureka but they are smallish compared to many other figures. Front Rank is always nice but their figure looks to be a bit dated.
As always, thanks for your help.

Have a look at the Perrys' compagnie d'elite dragoons. It would not take much to make them into pre-1810 carabiniers. Maybe just the paint job.

Check out the "old" foundry figures as weel, they heve some good early period carabiniers. I have a regiment of them and they look very nice (and fight well)

A votre service…….Like Artilleryman said, not too difficult;


With Microsoft Paint and if you accept the bearskin lacing not quite right
