|28mm Franco-Prussian War French infantry from Eagles of Empire|
|A lovely day at the cabin!|
|Not a great day for swimming, so bring on the painting! Lake Superior in the winter...|
These are Imperial French soldiers from the War of 1870, the Franco-Prussian War. These are 28mm castings sold by "Eagles of Empire", a fairly new provider that has brought some lovely castings to a period and setting that is otherwise (compared to subjects such as WW2, Napoleonics and others) somewhat-niche-and-neglected by sculptors and figure companies.
|Lots of nice detail on these tall castings|
|I'm not so crazy about how narrow the "true scale" Chassepot rifles are...tricky to paint...|
|The French sure seemed to carry a lot of cooking pans around in 1870...but of course!|
|A first volley fired...hopefully more to come...|
