Old Glory is a line that has been sculpted by many different hands. As such, outstanding work in one area may be offset by awful work elsewhere in the line. Happily, the French infantry here is among the better work I have seen.

Old Glory figures, in my opinion, do tend to be a bit portly, and this is clearly a well fed man. He fills out his trousers most creditably. While I am not wild about the pose, this is an otherwise very nice figure. In the Old Glory tradition, all the detail is here. The musket is richly sculpted, and the facings, cuffs and collar of the jacket are nicely called out. As with so many French infantry the poor fellow has no canteen (we can only hope there are a few bottles of Merlot stashed in his pack), but the rest of his equipment is present, and well done. The face is ordinary and features an expression so common to Old Glory figures: his mouth is open as if yelling or yodeling.

In general I find the detail on Old Glory figures to be oversized. It is to be supposed this makes it easier to pick out with a paint brush, and therefore visible on the battlefield. The same is true here. However, unlike his British counterpart some of the worst abuses of this approach have been avoided - for example his equipment straps are not as prodigiously thick.
