Fife & Drum French, of sorts?

French in the 1776 Regulations uniform. Picture is from  John Mollo’s „Uniforms of the American Revolution“.
The other day I was looking at some of the Fife and Drum AWI Continentals and noticing the similarity of their tricorn hat with that of the AWI French. So just for grins I decided to paint several Continentals in French white to see how they might look.
Continentals painted as the French Saintonge Regiment

Side view – the French didn’t wear tumplines or blanket rolls, but then, you never know what is worn on campaign.

A29, A27 and A25 from the Continental range.
These were fun to paint and it is amazing how much difference a little paint can make to a figure. I don’t have plans to paint a Faux French army, but then again, maybe I will if I want to do a Seige of Savannah game in the future.
