92nd Ligne

First French Infantry painted and based, the 92nd Linge from Tissot's Brigade at Waterloo. I am working at building up the Reille's II Corps which fought at Quatre Bras and Waterloo. I'm aiming to battle Quatre Bras by the end of the year, and maybe Waterloo sometime in the future.

Figures are Redline Miniatures from Bend Sinister. They are in greatcoats in a mix of colours. Just need to find a 2nd Battalion fanion. The Flag was from Nap flags on War Flags. They were printed out at 20%. Still need to paint the edges.

They were very easy to paint, and have good detail for something so small. I dipped them in wood stain for the shading. I'll probably matt varnish them at some stage.

Skirmishers are based 2 or 3 to a regular infantry sized base (25 x 15mm)

  1. What matt varnish would you use?

  2. I'm using the Army Painter Matt varnish, give then a bit of a light spray
