Chasseurs de Fischer part two

I have painted a battalion of Chasseurs de Fischer, plus some Chasseurs a Cheval to add to my light infantry advance gaurd brigade. All the Front rank figs for the infantry with a few conversions on officers and musicians (the Mirliton heads are from the Perry Hussar packs which I may change later on). The cavalry are foundry and I am awaiting the command before they are finished.












cheers
Matt

A good- and business-looking unit!

Regarding the flag(s) it is noteworthy that Mouillard gives none, while showing those of other 'light' outfits. ON other website the various flags and guidons of e.g. the Grassin are depicted without debate, but for Fischer you find no mention. This may be linked to the fact that initially the Fischers were a 'corps', not -vs. the Grassin, La Morliere, Bretons...- a *regiment*, and were almost disbanded after the WAS? Then for sure when out on a *huge* war footing for the SYW their received 'colours'?

Thanks guys, the collation of the article was a longer process then painting them!

Mmm a Flag of some description would be good. To me a unit does not seem finished unless it has a standard!

The backdrop is something I painted for photos it need to be a little wider I think.

The backdrop is a great idea. Just wanted to say hi anyway, and thanks for following my blog - I'll return the favour, if that's okay.

Cheers
