Armée d'Orient for Sharp Practice - Légère Skirmishers.

January always seems to see a spike in my painting activity and this year is no different after finally completing the core French forces the Skirmish elements seem to have taken no time at all.
Or could it be reading the campaign suppliment - Dawn and Departures I am itching to get some lead on the table?

I had a small number of Legere painted up originally but have expanded these to include make up two groups of skirmishers.



I opted for the classic French Blue allowing me to mix between the original French uniforms and the Kleber option.




Each groups comes with a Status I Big Man within Sharp Practice which should give them some flexibility on the battlefield.


The combined force comes to 56 points as a core force, this should give them some scope for additional forces such as a cannon or cavalry, although with several skirmishers left and a couple of tweaks and they would make a great proxy for members of the Coptic Legion?

The stats below will be used with Sharp Practice.
