WW2 French Engineers

Now that my daughter's 21st birthday is over with I have found some time to myself and here are the latest results...


Figures are Pegasus and Caesar 


Flame-thrower engineer platoon; quite rare in the French army of this era 


Command engineer platoon


A couple of variations of the same two figures


In CD3 there are several combinations of attachment for engineers, so, depending on the size of the main formation, anything from one to five additional engineer platoons might be added to the OOB.


I tried to style them in the assault mode rather than construction. This unit does not enjoy the same firepower as a German equivalent of the same time but is still a very versatile and solid unit of infantry nonetheless.
