French Guard released!

It’s our first release of 2021 and also a long-awaited one as the Guard have arrived!  We’d had these sculpted a few years back but they were lost in the void known as ‘Sculpting Drawer’…  But they’re here now and ready for deployment against those pesky Brits!

Two quick notes on these, obviously the Guard were present through until 1815 but we’ve put them in our 1809 French range for the timebeing, with their earlier descriptions.  When we add an 1815 French range in the future they can be moved over to there.  Also, the Young and Middle Guard wouldn’t have been issued with Eagles and would have bare poles with fanions instead.  As we don’t currently produce those we’ve left the eagles on for the timebeing and folks can simply snip them off if they’re going to make their own flags.

French Guard cavalry released!

It’s been a while since we’ve had any new goodies for you so hopefully this long-awaited batch will cheer some of you up!  These French Guard cavalry types were sculpted many moons ago and got themselves firmly wedged in a mysterious crevice where we couldn’t find them…   Embarrassed  But with the shows all cancelled for the foreseeable we thought it was about time we caught up on some of those ‘back burner’ projects and get them released.

And here they are!  We’ve got the Guard Chasseurs a Cheval and Grenadiers a Cheval, plus Empress Dragoons and Red Lancers for good measure.  We’ve got some Guard infantry and artillery crews also in the pipeline but it’ll be a little longer before we can get those ducks in a row.
