French infantry wore a round pompom. Flank companies wore a double plume. Ideally you want 4 tufts 4 tufts 4 bobbles 4 bobbles 4 bobbles 4 bobbles 4 bobbles.
The front 4 are voltigeurs. They have a yellow bobble and green plume. (Some battalions reversed that) They are the light company. They skirmish. Base them individually too. If you’re short of plumes that’s a green bobble. Next row is the grenadiers. They’re elite company. They have a red bobble and red plume. If you’re short of plumes just a red bobble.
1st company dark green bobble I think 2nd company skyblue 3rd company orange(deep yellow) 4th company violet (lilac) They’re all fusiliers
I’m trying to see if I’ve a book that’s not packed which shows it well.
Turns out voltigeur shakos And grenadier shakos should be taller too. My grenadiers tend to have bearskins.
