The Hero

While I have been working on all my standard French infantry figures, the Senegalese are among the most important.  As we have now played a few games, it has become clear that you need at least one unit that can get into a building and dig out some enemy buggers.

This is one of the few elite options for doing so.  Right now I only have a standard unit of ten, but it would be nice to have the option of larger units or to have two of them.

The uniforms are very similar to the usual French infantry overcoat, but the backpack and other gear are a little different.

It might be fun to get some of the Perry Brothers desert theme WW1 versions and try those out!

So here we have the second Senegalese completed!  The rest are in progress, and you will be seeing them all right here... stay tuned!
