Gorgeous - my fav French unit for the period.
Conquest range although limited (compared with say Redoubt) is beautifully sculpted

Very nicely done....I will second the beauty of Conquest Miniatures, they are really the best.

I had some correspondence with the chap who sculpted the original Conquest range; he was working on q follow-up project called "500 Nations" which was going to be a tour de force of all the First Tribes. Anyone know if he's still doing that?

The Redoubt natives were the canine's cojones, despite being "heroic" 28mm (ie 35mm); clearly a labour of love given the range of poses in every pack. Such a shame that they pissed off the original sculptor so much that he left after the first civilians, and then went through another one (or was it two?) who were just jobbing putty-pushers (see the Rangers) before they got the F&IW range back on track.
