Some extras for my French Foreign Legion

Posted by Fire at Will on 27 Feb 2021, 12:53

I am always being tempted by add-ons to existing armies, so I had to add some more artillery and resting figures to my FFL

37mm M1916 mountain guns, one wheeled the other on a tripod together with gunners from Strelets.

A very nice camp scene again from Strelets

The same scene to go with my earlier FFL.

I am also collecting the FFL range from Strelets. Can you recommend a good source for the different uniforms etc. ?

Your figs are really good looking again!

Why did you paint the uniforms in two different colors?

I've two different French Foreign Legion forces one early (blue capote) and one late (khaki). The Rifs and Arabs have a choice of which to fight. And really there is a third, a Platoon of Fighting French with my WW2 British 8th Army

Sorry Mabo, I can't suggest a single source I worked out the uniforms by trawling through all my books on related subjects and searching the internet. The uniform colour was based on quotes that they wore a mustard shade of Khaki drill,

Nice work. Quite the divergent combination....Artillery with Rest and Relaxation. The artillery pieces are my favorite. Interesting to see the same gun on 2 different limbers. Happy modeling.
