Chasseur Cantiniere Miniatures

A recent post on another Blog I follow (Warfare in the Age of Steam) about French Chasseurs of the Crimean War era reminded me that I had painted two Chasseur Cantinieres. I did these over 20 years ago so I dusted them off for new photos.

The ones below are German made flats.

This 54mm figure below had an ugly head so I replaced it with a head from an old Phoenix miniature and added some better details to the canteen (tonnelet) strap.

A nice feature of the Chasseur Cantiniere outfit was the lack of the short skirt that was usual with other unit's Cantinieres

You can compare the figures with this period photo from the Anne S.K. Brown Collection
