Pour la couronne et le pays!

France calls on reinforcements for its forces in Muskets & Tomahawks. Pour la couronne et le pays! (“For crown and country!”).

The Compagnies Franche de la Marines unit is complete for the 200-point skirmish force.   The core of the unit is their officer, a musician with a horn, and a ensign or two in proper uniforms. The rest of the unit wear variations on the uniform and more traditional marine outfits. They have enough variety in their uniforms to show off the looser training, as well as their acclimation with life in New France. Once I add French Regular infantry units they’ll really stand out.

This 9-man unit can be fielded as Regulars (gaining the Firing Line rule), thus a pic of them in line formation, or as Irregulars (gaining Scout), thus a pic in a skirmish screen.

Joining the French are a unit of allied Indians, in this case members of the Ottawa tribe. These miniatures were from Warlord Games Woodland Indians set. They got nice individual poses, as well as personal war paint.

Only a few more until the 200-point force is done.
