1805-1806 Saxons


A small post today, showing you my rendition of the Saxon Garde-Grenadiere (grenadiers of the Guard). I have composed a 3 regiment Saxon brigade from a box of HäT Saxon infantry and had enough grenadiers left to make a smaller Garde battalion.

Since the regular infantry has white uniforms, and I hate painting white uniforms, I guess they will have to wait a bit longer to be painted....

Cheers Sander

1st Battalion of the Old Grumblers


No true Napoleonic enthusiast will escape modelling at least one unit of Napoleon's Guard Grenadiers. Since I have heaps of the old Revell Grenadiers lying around and a box of Zvezda's excellent set I decided it was time to put paint to brush and get one regiment at least finished. In the works are some Light troops of the Guard as well but let's have a look at these first:

 The Command figures are converted HäT light infantry figures.

Cheers Sander,
