WSS: Régiment d'Artois

The second unit for my French forces is the Regiment d'Artois. The regiment was initially created in 1610 by the Comte de Beaumont Saint-Vallier.  In 1670 became part of the Régiment Royal then a year letter was renamed to Régiment Chateauneuf and, finally in 1673, it took the name of the province of Artois.  The Regiment was part of the Blenheim garrison under the Marquis de Balincourt.

The figures are from Black Hat and the flag is from Warflag.
