My 18th Century French Army

Latest Battle Photos
involving my 18th century French army
 
The following photos feature a large multi-player game that took place recently at the Wellington Warlords club. The battle, French versus British, was played using Piquet rules. My French army took to the field, fighting alongside some wonderfully-painted French troops belonging to Alan Hollows (who took these photographs, by the way). We won't dwell too much on the result of the battle - but suffice to say, our troops looked glorious!
French lines
The French lines before the battle. My troops are in the foreground, while further off in the distance Alan's forces stand ready. A close-up of some of my troops. The green-coated Chasseurs de Fischer are very obvious in this picture, as are the Ecossais Royal (Royal Scots) with their blue-and-white St Andrew's Cross flag.
My cavalry general leads his troops forward, while in the background you can see my Clermont-Prince light troops, along with the flags of the Regiment Belsunce and the Irish Regiment Lally. Some of Alan's beautifully painted troops. Those artillery look particularly impressive.
French troops converge on a wood, in which a battalion of Scots awaits. Ironically, one of the attacking French units is also Scottish - the blue-coated Ecossais Royal in the foreground. The Regiment Belsunce, resplendant in their purple facings, marches up to reinforce the light troops in the woods.
Battle royale! The main French and British armies converge. Unfortunately, if you peer way off into the background, you can see British troops (ably commanded by Brian Trott) on the hill sweeping round the French left flank! Sacre bleu! Meanwhile Alan's troops make a fine sight as they take the fire of a British grenadier unit.
