27e bataillon de chasseurs alpins

A French squad has been finished! I got the figures yesterday and had a little free time that afternoon to test a couple.

Following the TO&E from the FoF book, I have a squad of seven men, Sergeant; two corporals; three riflemen; a LGI gunner (similar to the Japanese "knee mortar"); and the S.A.W.

  3. AWSOME!!!!!! they are excellent the uniform is great, the poses are nice and varied, to think that they come from a single half set... youve turned a pretty uninspiring selection of figs into some really nice combat soldiers

  7. Thanks Thanos, I would have done the classic tri-color, but realised I'm out of red paint. So I went with a IR type patch with black and dark orange. Glad you like them.
