It's been a slow painting week so far. I'm nearly finished with these French troops who could as well be from the Compagnies Franches de la Marine or from the Languedoc Regiment. I like the idea of them being the picquests and Grenadiers of the Languedocs quite a bit. Time will tell.
Just to throw out a query, who thinks that any French regiment in north America had it's Grenadiers in Bearskins? I know of one re-enactment group that does this, and that there is a description of British troops plucking the "plumes" from the hats of French Grenadiers after Quebec, but it seems that this is too early in the Seven Years' War for many of the French infantry to be wearing this king of head-gear.
