After playing the last game I realised that the French Line Infantry were a bit short of recruits as they are quite badly outnumbered by the allies. This is due to the rapid expansion of the Prussian army last year plus additions to the Russians. To even things up I have just started work on the 24th Line Regiment which will be made up of marching figures from the 1807-12 range.
The rank and file will be formed from the figure shown which is FN/16 Voltigeur 1807/12 in plumed shakos (marching). So where are the plumes I hear you ask? Well unfortunately the original owner of these figures had decided to cut them down and also to remove their epaulets. Reconstructing them would be time consuming and fiddly so they will have to stay demoted to the line infantry.
The figures had dark brown coats when I acquired them, but I decided to go with grey on the re-paint. There will also be a company of marching grenadiers (without greatcoats) and the usual command figures to complete this unit.
