Algerian Reinforcements

Joining my French forces is this unit of Minifigs S Range Algerians. I cannot claim any credit for the painting as this is how they came when bought on line, apart from my painting of the bases and mounting them on MDF rectangles. I did, however, paint the standard bearer and I have noticed an odd yellow streak on the red part of the flag, which I will have to rectify.

  1. Very pretty and good troops too. Did the French ever manage an open field battle of their own against the RussiNs? I know they stormed the Makakoff etc. but thats's siege work.

  2. Oh yes indeed! The best known is the Battle of Tchernaya River on 16 August 1855, when a combined French and Sardinian force of around 18,000 defended the Fedioukine Hills against an attack by the Russian Field Army. It was quite a well balanced action and is next on my list to refight as a war game.
