Looking for 28mm French Troupes de Marines
« on: November 05, 2009, 11:26:06 PM »
I know of Dixon's nice Dahomey range that includes French Foreign Legion & Marines, but are there any others?

Primarily, I'm looking for pith helmeted infantry without a purpose built equipment belts like this

Askari has some french infantry with pith helmets, but they're in marching poses, & not terribly combative.

Someone suggested French from the Boxer Rebellion, but Redoubt's Boxer French don't have pith helmets, & Old Glory's packs have too many for what I need.

Also, any idea what the difference is between Dixon's FFL & Marine figures?  I've seen the pictures of them that someone posted here on LA about 2 years ago, but I couldn't really see any differences.

Thanks
Remember, remember, the Dalek December
With Paris in ruins and London in ember
In times of the future when fears are abating
Don’t try to forget them, the Daleks are waiting
Quietly planning and scheming and hating…
