Zouave and zophisicated

The latest batch of 54mm toys are these Zouaves.  They are HAT plastic figures form the same sets I have previously used for the Forbodian Jager battalion .  I bought six boxes of these chaps so expect another couple of units in the fullness of time!
As with all my recently completed units the flag is removable so this lot could turn up on either side in the ACW, or in various other armies - French, Turkish etc.

Very nice, large and shiny. I look forward to seeing them take to the field.

Yes very nice. Always though the all light blue look was cooler than the brash red pants.

I'm sure they'll have an offer of work ere long.

The pale blue was largely inspired by the French Tirailleurs Algeriens uniform.

Thanks - nothing to it really.

How do you make the flags removeable? Is the complete thing (flag + pole) or just the flag itself?

The flag pole (brass rod) is fixed to the figure. The flag itself is wrapped round a length of brass tube which fits over the pole.
