Tirailleurs Algerien (Unit Pack)


SKU: FR-4 Category:


The Tirailleurs Algerien were the native regiments from Algeria. They manned forts too remote for even the Foreign Legion, and were combined with them in regiments d’marche in places such as Madascgar and Dahomey. The cut of the uniform is identical to the zouaves, but in light blue.

20 figures: Native officer, drummer, 9 tirailleurs firing, 9 tirailleurs advancing.

    i was just revamping my Colonial French Army..and saw again those minis .they are very nice….in fact the uniform, except the colours..should be the same of the Zouave..but if you look closely to those minis , the designer even succeeded in sculpting a typical north african face..different from the "belle époque" typical of the Zouaves…Tirailleurs Algériens are my favourite if compared to Zouaves because they saw more action in Morocco..Askari even produced a bearded Officier Indigène which was a quite rare occurrence in the Armée d’Afriqhe but those few native officers were expert and battle hardened veterans mostly decorated and , in wargame terms (like in TSATF) a very nice addition to your units
