Having not yet got a replacement gas bottle for our camping stove , with which I melt metal to cast, I have been using some ready cast figures I got off EBay . I decided to do a French Light Infantry unit the 'Chasseurs De Sombreuil' .
I got the uniform details from http://www.kronoskaf.com/syw/index.php?title=Main_Page
a brilliant site for all things SYW .
The basic infantry figure is a earlier Holger Erikson figure from Prince August . To my mind the earlier figures have more character than the newer more fully rounded ones that they are now producing and certainly easier to cast .
