New Orleans Up North

Doug Hamm sent me some pictures of his pet project. Doug's always wanted to do New Orleans 1815 to complete his War of 1812 project. One of the units he's been interested in is Plauche's New Orleans militia. These troops wore uniforms surprisingly, or maybe not surprisingly, that look like French Napoleonics. There are two pictures of Plauche's battalion and one of the Jean Laffite's Baratarian pirates that manned heavy guns along the American defensive lines. The pictures highlight Doug's brilliant painting, as usual.

Those Grenadiers are really nicely painted. I deleted my previous comment thinking they might've been Old Glory, but now I think they are Victrix? Great looking figures in any case. Dean
