French Late Grenadiers of the Guard

WGN-FR-14

French Late Grenadiers of the Guard. 

ormed 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.

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.
