Regiment Brie
Regiment Brie
 

This regiment has nothing to do with my imaginary general, the Duc de Brie (see General Staff). The Regiment Brie was a real-life regiment in the French army of Louis XV.

Regiment Brie

The uniform is the basic French soldier's white coat, with red cuffs and a red waistcoat. I painted the uniforms white, then covered them with a black ink wash, then dry-brushed with white again to bring up the highlights.

This regiment was made up from some Front Rank models that I bought second-hand, and includes a bigger range of uniform and pose variations than my other regiments. You'll see several soldiers wearing the colourful 'pokalem' hats, as well as a few bare-headed.

As with most of my flags, my source was the excellent Nec Pluribus Impar website, with a little texture added in before printing out. I liked the variation of the diagonal yellow crosses on this flag.
