1st Italian Campaign French troops retexture
My idea for the mod was to add more variations to French Troops which fought in 1st Italian Campaign during Napoleonic Wars to show how. This should be more accurate as Italian French Revolutionary army was low on supplies of uniform and footwear,forced to wear scavenged civilian clothes.
I was strongly inspired by works of Keith Rocco, his Napoleon's 1st Italian Campaign artwork particularly.
Don't judge my work too badly, as this is my first ever modding experience and I've never used Photoshop for edditing textures either. ENJOY!
Don't be confused by not all of the grenadiers wearing bearskins - soldiers had to wear it only if they could afford one themselves.
At that time, shakos weren't widespread in European armies and ,in my personal opinion, helmets suit better to the period depicted in the game.
