French Revolution and Egyptian Campaign - Demi Brigades redone
I wanted to capture the colourful nature of the army early on, before it was re-equipped with blue cotton uniforms.I decided to repaint the Demi Brigade Light Infantry as two small units, giving a variety of coat colours, rather than as one larger unit. I also wanted to be able to use them for other Revolutionary Wars campaigns. The units chosen are the 4e Legere and the 22e Legere. Both served in the Egyptian capaign, but the main reason for choosing these were thier presence among the uniform plates in Elting/Knotel.
Next I have five dromedaire troopers, some grenadiers, and a single rifleman and line infantryman to repaint.
