I was just thinking about converting and compromising in order to fill up my corps expéditionnaire. Now I will have to wait and save pocket money. Thank God (or rather Alan Perry!
Will I have to start tinkering to get my Rhode Islanders with their peculiar caps and their mixture of Blacks, Mulattoes, Indians, and Whites? I hope not because I am not extremely good at sculpting.

I thought I'd better show you what I've been up to, as you might have thought I'd been slacking! I've made a start on the French for the AWI range, as well as the much-asked-for Lee's Legion. These won't be available until early next year, though.

French in 1779 regulations, painted

I'm making the French in both the 1776 short-tailed coats, as well as in the 1779 regulations (i.e., long-tailed, fuller coats). I might even make some in the full 1776 regs with the 'four cornered hats' that may have made an appearance in America. I plan to cover all the French forces (including Lauzun's Legion, of course).

The French could also be used for India, West Indies, East Indies Minorca, Grenada, Ceylon, Gibraltar, and the attack on Jersey in the Channel Islands.

Lee's Legion are shown in their strange 'purple uniforms', as well as a white uniform used in the South (thanks for the additional info on these, Brendan!).
