Chasseurs De Sombreuil

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' .

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 .


  1. A dashing Old School unit you have there Sir!


  2. Absolutely first rate gloss finish - they look just the ticket!
