Santa gave me 7 boxes of French infantry for Christmas and I have been busy trying them out (in painting terms). The Russian Zvezda box of light infantry are fantastic and I have been painting these just for fun. Hat Industry have 2 boxes of light. Unfortunately the quality of the boxes are a little mixed. The 1809 (pre-Bardin reforms) box is really good quality but are reasonably unusable in my army because it is supposed to be post 1812. The Voltiguers are ok but a little chunky. The other boxes like the middle guard aren't very well sculpted. Still then I am by myself for the week I hope my project can move ahead at pace.
