Decided that this month is "Frogruary" and that I would take advantage of the relatively high local temperatures (above 10 degrees C so suitable for rattle can work) to assemble the two boxes of Wargames Atlantic French Infantry (1916-1940) I bought in a Goblin Games sale last September. On the way, I discovered on the way that another name for Wargames Atlantic plastics is "the land that right arms forgot" due to the absence of "free" right arms. In the end, I had to cannibalise some from my British and German boxes.
Anyway, the assembled - see what I did there?- formation will be the equivalent of a German zug or British platoon (odd that, having invented the word "peloton" the French chose to use the word "Section" instead; I wonder if they also have a phrase for "esprit de corps"?) and have around 60 figures, with supports, since I'm working to the "CoCking Up Through the Mud and the Blood" rule set.
