Description

Napoleon created the Imperial Guard as an army within an army. To gain accessto its hallowed ranks was the dream of many French soldiers. Better pay, food,uniforms and a swagger that carried them all over Europe – it was a post ofgreat honour and they worshipped their Emperor. They were far from being palaceguards however as long and active service made them crack soldiers who could berelied upon to get the job done.

This plastic set contains enough troops to field three Guard battalions(80 soldiers in each) with accompanying mounted officers. Old Guard arerecognizable by the brass plate on front of their bearskin hats and the rearpatch atop them. The Middle Guard bearskins didn't carry the brass plate or rearpatch so these can be painted over as if fur. We have added a few extra heads;those who wish to further differentiate their units can replace some of themwith the shako or the bonnet to convey the poorer supplied Middle Guard althoughit isn't mandatory!

Also included are units of Marines of the Guard (30 soldiers) and Engineersof the Guard (30 soldiers). These add a further dash of colour and variety tothe French army. To cover the Guard in the attack Napoleon fielded ‘His lovelydaughters’, large 12-pounder cannon, crewed by excellent gunners and whichcould reach out further than most Allied guns. A dangerous foe indeed…
