Two pike and shot Regiments for the Army of Louis XIV

I got a very nice suprise recently when an old friend of mine, Chris,  handed me a box and said 'These are for you.' At first I assumed it was an IED and he was wanting to inflict some sort of grievous bodily harm on me. He insisted that it wasn't. When I opened the box I was very pleasantly surprised to find two nicely painted units from the North Star 1672 range. Two French regiments of Foote: the Regiment Bourbon (red cuffs and stockings/breeches) and the Regiment Dauphin (with the multi coloured flag).
I was very impressed! Thanks mate! Much appreciated!!!!
I rebased them for my 'Vive Le Roi' rules and they're ready to go. There was also two artillery pieces which I have yet to base up!
 ( ps I did kill the large poisonous spider that he had hidden in the bottom of the box).
