You can see the individual units under the French label. It's been a while since I painted French troops and I'm keen to do more, as they are very pretty troops. I have a half-finished unit of chasseurs that needs polishing off (this is the unit above flanked by two individually based Eureka Miniatures officers). The unit stalled because I lost one figure and it wasn't until Salute earlier this year that I finally decided that I'd never find this figure and so bought a whole pack just to replace it. I'm intending to finish painting this unit next month. I'll then do a unit of grenadiers and some more line infantry, and I have in the lead pile the various command figures that Perry released. So at the moment I have 3.5 battalions of infantry and several skirmishers (who aren't shown here). The figures are mainly from Perry Miniatures. The singly-based officers, as mentioned, are from Eureka Miniatures' Revolutionary Wars range, as are the various camp follower sets.
I've also added another label for the various "parades" I occasionally have of my collections. The original AWI parades are some years old now so I should have a go at re-doing those, although I suspect each side no longer fits onto 1 table - the American forces in particular are much larger now than they were in 2008. I did a parade of my 1815 French collection last year, but I seem not to have posted about it then for some reason; given everything I've painted since I'll have another session with my 1815 stuff at a later stage.
Was there a direct causal link between France's involvement in the American Revolution and the fall of the Bastille? The cost of the war was one of the contributing factors to France's economic problems, which were a major cause of the French Revolution. It is also sometimes said that men who fought in American returned home with new-found revolutionary fervour, but I expect it's easy to overplay that. As it happens, I'm currently painting the Perry Miniatures sculpt of General Marcognet, a soldier who fought in America as a very young junior officer in the final stages of the AWI and by 1815 had risen to command a division in d'Erlon's I Corps. I wonder how many other soldiers were present at Waterloo who had also been in the AWI.
