French Foreign Legion Company in White Fatigues

Here is the first company of 12 Legionnaires that I painted in white fatigues.  I have various methods of painting white, my favorite involving layering light brown, buff and then white.  A grey base works well also with with highlights.  However . . . I cheated this time and just painted 2 coats of white over a black primer.

The figures are from Artizan Designs which is one of my favorite figure manufacturers.  The flag is from the wonderful site Warflag. The staff for the flag is a cut down metal pike from Warlord Games.


The company is organized as 12 figures and can be utilized for a variety of Colonial rule sets; my two favorite these days are In Her Majesty's Name and The Men Who Would be Kings.

 Honneur et Fidélité

 The bugler is my favorite figure.

  3. These look lovely, Neil. I have some of the very same figures myself. I have no actual historical opponents for them. I just liked the figures and put together a couple of units...

    1. Tim, I've done the same thing - no opponents but boy are they great figures. I'm currently building an "adventuring company" for In Her Majesty's name that feature the Artizan figures.
