Description

Description

There are few soldiers more famous than the Grenadiers of the Old Guard, veteran soldiers of many campaigns who would literally give their lives for their Emperor if needed.

Formed from the Consular Guards in 1804, they were the elite of an elite, each man hand-picked for his height and military bearing. They proudly grew fierce moustaches, powdered their pigtailed hair, and wore gold earrings which gave them a glamorous if wild countenance.

These loyal soldiers served their Emperor well and earned their nickname ‘Les Grognards’ (grumblers) as they marched all over Europe, smashing France’s foes on battlefield after battlefield.

They were finally defeated in the savage fighting at the Battle of Waterloo in June 1815. Much of their action at this battle was hand-to-hand against Prussian troops and British firepower under the darkening skies. Such was their reputation and prowess in battle that they left a fighting legacy none could match.

This boxed set contains Old Guard Grenadiers in campaign overalls, ready to fight for the honour of France and her Emperor.

Contains:

  • 24 metal French Grenadiers of the Old Guard:
    • 4 metal command miniatures (officer, pioneer, standard bearer and drummer)
    • 20 Grenadiers
  • Background and painting guide including three full-colour flags.

Models supplied unassembled and unpainted
