Papal Line Infantry and Dragoons.


There has been a slight delay in posting this update due to having to change Internet provider , after about 8 years Virgin don't seem interested with us any more because we don't have access to fibre optic broad band ! - however normal service has resumed after a ( happily) pain free transfer to Plusnet. Above is my first of three Papal Infantry Line battalions .


The flank companies had different coloured epaulets - red for the Grenadiers and yellow for the Voltigeurs . I've made a start on the second battalion and some Staff figures to complete the army .


I've also got done a Squadron of Papal Dragoons , the great thing about this period is the general lack of cavalry deployed by the combatants and then mostly only in Squadrons attached to Infantry Brigades , so this means not much cavalry to paint up !.


It's a bit sad really because they are very colourful . All the figures are Irregular 25mm . When I've finished this army I plan to build a Piedmontese army to fight them - but I have to finish off the mammoth re-basing of my Napoleonics first .
