Just a couple of additional questions, Mike : the Artizan website lists a MOD010 pack (FFL in greatcoats). Since there is no picture of it, are the boys wearing kepis too or are they the pack of légionnaires in greatcoats and melon pit helmet you mentioned earlier in this thread ?

Furthermore, is the pack below MOD002 or MOD009 ? I was thinking the former but I'm not sure.

this range just getting more awesomer all the time.
I used to be with it, but then they changed what it was. Now what I'm with isn't it anymore and what is it seems weird and scary.

Hopefully, there will soon be some Chasseurs d'Afrique and some machine gun and field gun crews. And perhaps some spahis.

Hi Here are some photos of the command, marching legion and Tirralieur. really sorry about the delay getting these up here!!
Mike


i've got my morrocan tirailleurs for the "brigade indigene" in 1914 for the great war !!
my project is too play the book of general Juin (the one of the FFL in Italy in 1943) concerning his participation as a lieutenant of morrocan tirailleurs at the battle of the Marne in 1914.
very good news!

regards
paco

excuse my ignorance on this one ,but my knowledge of this subject is limited to the few films I've seen .I have bought a selection of these figures for a pulp game set in a fictional desert state ,but if I wanted to expand later into a historical setting would all these packs be ok in a sahara type setting just ordered a couple of books but eager to get cracking . ?

I believe you could use these for the Sahara, Tonkin campaign and Sino-French War,
Dahomean War and Madagascar.

Both Tirailleurs algériens rank and file packs are illustrated on the Artizan website and available for sale. I imagine that the command pack will follow in the next few weeks along with the French cavalry, artillery and Berber tribesmen Mike mentioned in a previous post. He also said something about a Legion mounted command pack.

If we're extra nice, perhaps Mike will do skirmishing tirailleurs as well with some firing/loading poses. I'm also hoping for FFL mounted company packs, ideally one with mounted légionnaires and one with dismounted mule holders.

Oh your right.Mike said two packs of basic riflemen and I thought he meant two packs advancing.I saw the marchers but they are  kind of a 'meh' for me.

Hi, there is another pack of Algerians done, these are a mix of firing advancing and loading poses. The mounted company packs are under way and I am getting another pose of mule made before releasing them. I am currently working on the weapons for the Moroccans and these will start to come out in early December.
Regards.
Mike

I'm not a uniform expert, how similar are the Legion in sunhelmet figures to the marine infantry? I'm thinking of Boxer Rebellion here.
