Hi guys

Some 28mm Middle Guard Grenadiers and Chasseurs finished for a friend, not sure who makes these figures, not bad though, they do the job, noticed some moustaches I missed, will need to fix those, all comments welcome.

Front Rank minis – the Napoleonic figures exclusively modeled off re-enactors. Well fed.

Brian for a +1.

And these are very well painted figures, Gunner.

Very nice and clean

Just a question – seeing the shako reinforcement (the chevrons) – were they black, or white? I have a feeling I have seen them white before.

But if they are front rank I can see why they are popular – very nice and clean details, to make painting easier

Nice work Gunner, I personally really like Front Rank figures. Wonderful to paint.
Being that they are Middle Guard would they not have white piping around the edges of their backpacks?

If 28mm figures are painted well enough to take this level of magnification…that is impressive.

Your probably right about the chevrons and piping, will look into it.

Check it out. Immediate reaction…without any reference…is….. both I have seen. I do admit the shako chevrons, with no distinguishing colour, seems daft…but I have seen…

No….I will check

I did. I found them with white chevrons, white chevrons and a white band around the top of the shako but also black bands…and Rousellot should know.

I suspect many (including me) may have confused Young and Middle Guard and, let's face it, definition of latter was vague at best and changed regularly!

I understood the MG to have had chevrons, but not the YG. Happy to be corrected
