les Mousquetaires gris

My latest unit is the Mousquetaires gris of the Maison du Roi. This is of course the regiment of the "Three Musketeers" fame, but in the uniform in which it served in the War of the Austrian Succession and Seven Years War.

These beautiful 28mm figures are by Crann Tara and were painted for me by a good friend. The flag is by GMB Designs.

The gris (grey) musketeers and the noir (black) musketeers rode horses of their respective colour. I hope to do the Mousquetaires noir at some point.
