In case anyone is still interested in the French infantry - I thought I would post pictures of a unit I have just completed.
I went for the march attack figure with the coat tails loose, as these are something a little different. I decided to paint them as Swiss Guard as I fancied some for my French 'Karoliner' army. (They would probably have been better with turn backs, but I wanted to try the figure without them.)
With the lose coats the range has become useful for earlier periods.
You should be able to put them on your Christmas list!
