Dauphin Regiment - This regiment is dedicated to my son. The first of these troopers was painted the week he was born, and they are currently celebrating their 26th (or is it 27th) anniversary. I've begun to measure the age of my units, as well as it's combat experience, by the number of snapped bayonets in the rank and file. Dauphin has almost a full company without the wee sharp pointy things. Dauphin is brigaded with the Regiment la Marne (coming soon), and represent Brigade III "Les Paysans" ("The Peasants") as they do not come from the social elite of St. Maurice. Given that "social elite" and "St. Maurice" may in fact be an oxymoron when used in the same sentence, one can only imagine the origins of the rank and file parading here.
The figures are predominantly Stadden with a Suren Colonel and, Vivandiere and junior officers in the color party.

Yes indeed, great colors, nicely painted unit!

A very good-looking regiment, showing its veteran status rather than its proletarian recruitment. Too bad we don't have a better view of the vivandière: a little tenderness in a brutish world...
Cheers,
Jean-Louis

Very nice troops. I especially like that they were named for your son, that is very cool, one day he might field them.
