More Light Infantry

Introducing the Chasseurs de la Moutarde, light infantry in the Batrachian Army. This unit comes from the Moutarde* region of Batrachia. They are commanded by Captain Jean "Renard" Dijon. (He's a professional)

Correction: I have been informed by reliable sources, the famed scholar Steve Kriegspieler, that the Captain's surname is actually Dijon. Renard is some sort of Batrachian nickname.

* aka Mustardy.

..shouldn't that be Captain Jean Dijon??? :o))

I was going to suggest Capt. Louis Poupon . . . but I like Steve's suggestion of Dijon better.

I love it, Steve! Mind if I use your suggestion?

I already used Poupon for the Moutarde cavalry. (Not sure that came out right! lol)

A spicy unit indeed!

Steve-the-Wargamer said...

Fitz, it would be a pleasure.. :o)

PS. Do not forget his second cousin, the english mercenary, Major Frederick Colman..... :o))

If Poupon, wouldn't the uniforms have to be grey?


Fitz-Badger said...

Mike, the Poupon cavalry do ride greys... (the initial depiction showed them on horses of various shades of brown, but they have since been remounted on greys; as another noted scholar, the famous Jeff "Blaubar" Hudelson", pointed out as their proper mounts - I repainted the horses, so now they're horses of another color! lol).

Hot stuff for their enemies to face. ;)

Just started to follow your blog. Enjoy the battle narratives - more please (if you get the time).
I'll be calling in here again.


Fitz-Badger said...

Thanks, guys! I suppose they might relish the chance to mix it up with some Frankfurters? lol

Steve, I hope to get more battles going this year. Next time I'll take photos of the action, too.
