Wow they are amazing! I took a look at your facebook pictures and they are just as amazing. The ancients are my favorite. Any chance you could do a painting tutorial for your ancient Greeks or Romans?

Thank you

Many thanks, Michael! Very nice to read your feedback.
Teaching video or photos with explanations is a great idea. I will try to prepare such materials.

Did light troops have drums? For some reason I thought they only had horns.

I made the same mistake on this forum years ago.

I thought Light Infantry only had hornists.

Light companies of line regts did.

Light Infantry Regts however had drummers, just like Line Regts.

No-one ever said it was easy!

Funny how good French Light Regts can look when their outfit should be so boring frankly. It is all to do with bringing out the vibrant blue shown here.

Oh yeah. The uniform of the French army it is difficult to understand!

I agree with you, the light infantry uniform is good when the blue is pretty bright. Although the reenactors look spectacular in their dark blue uniforms. But on the table the "right" color looks like black.

Thank you, deadhead!
