Russian Infantry of Peter

Boy, just looking at those on PSR. If those don't look like French and Indian war French I'll eat my scalp.

Re: Russian Infantry of Peter

They do look nice

Re: Russian Infantry of Peter

Nope. They don't. They are Russian. I can't see a Frenchman in any of them. Hair not tied back, French did not wear the neck kerchief in that manner, French wore long gaiters/leggings.
What's it gonna take to get some French infantry ?
(probably the same as getting Colonial Highlanders )

Re: Re: Russian Infantry of Peter

Well, until the real thing comes along, you make do.

Re: Re: Re: Russian Infantry of Peter

well, eat your scalp :), or join some british allied natives, then you can eat one of the french :)
But these are better material then the swedish I think, but you have to do some conversions. (and btw, there aint british figs around to :( ) Strelets shoudl make two mini sets, french and britsh regulars. then the normal formula for one set of French militia/compagnies de la marine in campaign dress, one for indians, and one for british light/scottish infantry, and one for rogers rangers/american militia. (yes indeed, I like dreaming :) )
