I've finished the first half of my planned french young guard brigade - 2 battalions. I'll be painting another 2 battalions early next year.
These are Hat Industries models, the first napoleonic troops I've painted in greatcoats, and how fast they paint up!
The fanions were hand painted, to a design I found online - since it seems these troops had no regulation design.
I also made 4 bases of skirmishers, enough to represent the mixed formation of a single unit. I'll do another 4 skirmish bases along with the next 2 battalions, so I can field the brigade with the 2 battalions in the front supported by their own screen of skirmishers.
Looks like you didn't choose for the grey overcoat! They look great all in blue!ReplyDelete
Peter, the guard used blue overcoats, in opposition to the line's grey.Delete
