French Line Infantry Secound Unit

Here we are again another day another unit, I know I am milking it I could have shown this unit yesterday but  it took some time to finish these so its worth another post . As before its an Eurika AB unit sold through Fighting 15s here in the UK . As before French uniforms are always hard to get completely right the osprey book is a bit of a let down and that's the first time I have said that, with the information on the uniform plates telling you more about what a unit did rather than what it wore .
 As you can see the larger battalion has 40 figures and the smaller one 36 because of the tight basing I kept it simple and put some tufts on . I would recommend the range to anyone with an interest in the period they are on the most part clean and in these two units I did not have any miscast pieces . The only thing I would say is the colour poles and the fanion are bendy because of the soft metal .
The colours are from GMB design they represent the 66e line regiment  first and second battalion . Although for me they are generic and could represent most line infantry pre 1812 .
 These units are for sale and will be going on ebay today if you are interested . Well that's it for now I will be back with some AB dragoons , some more 28mm Romans and I can at last start another unit of AB peninsular war British .
  Take care and look after those brushes !
