Camp Frenchmen (4)
As with all these sets, I wanted this to stand muster for both the AWI and Napoleonics. So with the AWI in mind I painted the cantiniere's jacket/dolman in the sky blue and yellow of Lauzun's Legion. I don't know whether this matches the colours of any particular Napoleonic hussar regiment, but I would be surprised if it didn't. I also painted the skirt in standard dark blue as opposed to any fancy tricolore stripes. I decided to paint the cart in my normal wood colours rather than French artillery green. The cover is just Foundry "Canvas A" dry-brushed with the B and C colours.
1 figure, a donkey and a cart full of stuff. Painted June 2013.
