Chasseurs de Fischer
Chasseurs de Fischer

The first unit of light troops in my French Army are the Chasseurs de Fischer. They were established in 1743 by a former officer's valet who made a reputation for himself guiding other valets in and out of the islands of the Moldau River.

Chasseurs de Fischer

The unusual cap worn by these troops is called a mirleton. The officer wears a fur trimmed jacket (this is how he is modelled by Front Rank, but I believe the fur trim was worn by another light troop unit, the Arquebusiers de Grassin, not the Chasseurs de Fischer, so this might not be strictly accurate).
