WSS: Régiment de Languedoc

The next unit for the French is the Régiment de Languedoc.  The regiment was formed in 1672 by Louis XIV and recruited from the Languedoc region which gave it its name.  It formed part of the Blenheim reserve in the brigade under the Baron d'Argelos.



This regiment went on to fight in New France during the Seven Years War and I have a unit to represent them in my 15mm French & Indian War collection.

As before, the figures are from Black Hat and the flag is from Warflag.

    1. Thanks. The French have some interesting colours for their units - certainly a lot more varied than our became later in that century anyway!
