It has been said that some guards are cooler than others. Which unit would you pick as the coolest of the guards?

Brunswick Leib- Battaillon-- w/ black, silver, and death's heads who aren't Nazi stormtroopers. Nothing cooler than that.

khanscom -- I tried to pass off the Lieb Battalion as a guard unit with the local group but the Nappy experts said it was not. Can you give me some references to prove to them it is. Thanks

My choice is the Pavlovski Guard Grenadier Regiment of the Napoleonic Russian Army. I love the mitre helmets.

And I have them in my 1813 Russian forces.

@bobgnar-- I regard any unit with "Leib" in its title as a guard unit. Only ever gave it a slight morale bonus in Napoleonic games since it was newly formed around an experienced cadre-- not even close to the status of the Old Guard.
