These are the old Airfix soft plastic 1/72nd scale French Line Infantry
http://www.plasticsoldierreview.com/Review.aspx?id=44

I am basing them for Blucher.
https://sammustafa.com/blucher/

I have kept these for 43 years, even though I was not interested in Napoleonics as I could not part with figures. and just when I decide to throw them or give them away, I find the Blucher rules and the podcast Napoleon 101. http://napoleonbonapartepodcast.com/
Considering their age, I am happy with them.

I hope you like them. Constructive comments are welcomed.

A great job done here. I think the monotony of repeat painting would quickly make me lose interest with something like this.

The uniformity (no pun intended) of the colours is fantastic. Excellent!
