Back to expanding my French infantry. Here we have a unit of Carabiniers à Pied de La Infanterie Legére. These are produced by Hat.
As usual for Hat kits, these guys come in large numbers. 56 to be exact. Enough to do a full regiment of 4 bases and still plenty left to come up with 12 skirmish bases.
I may use 8 bases, aligned together as shown below, to represent a small unit:
My plan is to build more representative light regiments, using a mix of carabiniers, voltigeurs and chasseurs. The historical proportions were 1/1/4 in a regiment, respectively, but since I'm only using 4 bases per standard unit, I'll do mine with 1 base of carabiniers, 1 of voltigeurs and the remaining 2 of chasseurs.
This is going to take a while, though. The voltigeurs are already being painted, by I've got no kits of chasseurs yet, so, for now, I'll stick to 2 light regiments, each with 2 bases of carabiniers and 2 of voltiguers.
