I'm doing my light infantry in the wrong order, starting with flank companies without having any center companies painted up. But I needed skirmish screen to cover my carabiniers, and with all those bearskins and parade uniforms it wasn't a job for my regular skirmishers.
Enter these guys from Front Rank: light infantry voltigeurs, all decked up in colpacks and plumes. The yellow and red really stands out on the battlefield when I use them. Right now I'm happy with my decision to distinguish line and light infantry by using more parade uniforms for the light infantry. But in the future I might mix a bit, especially given the really nice line infantry released by Avanpost the last year.
As for Front Rank, I like that these have a ton of character, and overall I prefer their infantry to their cavalry, mainly because of the poses. They are a tad on the big and bulky side compared to a lot of the other ranges I use, but it doesn't really bother me, especially when using them in separate units.
Now I just really need some light infantry chasseurs!
