The figure is FN/254 French Voltigeur in Plumed Shako (charging). I’m painting this one, together with his five friends, to represent the Voltiguer Company of my 9th legere unit. Progress has been slow on this unit because of other distractions but I hope to get a few more figures painted soon.
This figure is almost certainly a vintage one and was among the batch donated to me a while back by Douglas. I’ve been thinking recently that, given the title of this blog and my limited painting time, I really should focus on painting all my genuine vintage figures first before working on any more of the dubious types.
