These are the first figures I have painted from Fantassin (now War Modelling Miniatures) and they were a pleasure to do. I did them as a Xmas present for a friend which is why I haven’t based them. I was a bit late getting them and with the hot weather I haven’t been painting much so they have turned into a late Xmas present.
Vivandière is the French term for these troops and while I don’t recall seeing them in any army list, they certainly should keep the lads’ spirits up.
