28mm Perry Plastics FPW 1870: French Infantry


Here are the latest FPW French infantry from the Perrys. I have painted two battalions, the first and second of a notional Regiment. The Eagle and flag are carried by the second battalion. They are nice figures but the coats are so voluminous that it's quite hard to fit all the figures on a stadard plastic green base.

I posted a Prussian battalion back in August 2021 and actually I prefer the poses of those figures although the French uniform is quite pretty. The Perry uniform quide is, as always, useful but not detailed enough concerning the kepi so I have posted here a more detailed picture of the kepi from a reproduction company in France.
