Maximillian War - Imperial French

The mighty Imperial French Army that descended upon poor Mexico when they stopped paying them the debt money.

The foot infantry in this one are French Foreign Legion, the Cavalry are Chasseur d'Afrique & some Foot Artillery.

Vive La France!!!

I feel a 'Camerone' Battle is on the cards....

Big Fat French General leads the way
Skirmishers to the front
