28mm SYW French: IR8. Bourbonnais, four battalions


This was a very senior regiment in the French army and counted as "Petits Vieux". It participated in many SYW battles although it was fortunate not to be at Minden. I have painted this regiment because I like the colour combination of the ordonnance flags as well as the elegant absence of any facing colour. This almost concludes the French infantry – all that remains is the two battlion regiment of IR73 Haynault.

The figures are all from Black Hussar except for three Foundry drummers. The dead and wounded are also very nice sculpts from Black Hussar.
