As I said in the comments, non ancients but not a new project, I did 4 of these almost a year ago, finnaly finshed the unit. It should not take that long to paint 8 cavarly. Hopefully when I get ontop of bills I place some largeish orders to expand this project.
The flag is removable, based on Olicanalads system. So these can be any french or non french unit of Gendarmes.
