Compagnie Franche de la Marine

I have used my French Regular force several times and did not like their lack of Irregular troop capability. In my experience a regular force without some unit to scout and clear dense terrain is the beginning of the end for any Regulars trying to accomplish an objective on the M&T battle board. So I contracted to have some Compagnie Franche de la Marine and a few Indians painted up to supplement my French. Here are some pictures of the completed figures. All painted by Alan Mander. Alan's work can be found on the Warlord Games web site here.
Here they are scouting some woods as the early morning sun crests the hill.
Moving to a position of advantage.
Having occupied their position they cover the expected enemy avenue of approach waiting to spring a possible ambush.
Indian allies help cover their flank.
A keen eye will be needed this day.
