With Saturday and Battleground looming I've just finished the final unit for the French army. I'm not 100% happy with them but they'll do from a few feet away. They represent a squadron of the Gendarmes de France. Part of Louis XIV Maison du Roi but not if that makes sense? It doesn't to me but they are French. I had two Gendarmes flags but only one squadron and couldn't make my mind up so thought I would use both and make them a composite squadron from two different companies of Gendarmes.
