Nicely done

Adds a touch of colour to all that French blue!

Always liked the Swiss. Maybe the Canaries next? Or the Irish Legion?

The Isembourg Regiment:


And now the Valais battalion :-)

nice work.

Thank you !

I will do the Hanoverian Legion, the Tour d'Auvergne regiment, the Irish Legion, the Piedmontese legion and a swiss regiment.

I would like to do the portuguese legion but I can't find 28mm metal miniatures with their typical shakos…

Nice job on one of my favorite units in the Peninsula . Two small points… the Valaisan Battalion did not have a voltigeur company and it was never issued a flag or an eagle; one may have been authorized in 1810 but was apparently not delivered prior to the battalion being absorbed into the 11e Légère (I would probably ignore that fact since the flag and eagle look too cool to pass up).

Again, a very nicely painted unit!
