Announced today Fusiliers and Grenadiers but the clever thing is the separate heads to convert the plastic figures.

Apparently there will be a small cart also carrying wounded.

I am sure Tango will show it when he posts these on the Discussion Forum (Grin)

My understanding was for prior to 1808 The 3 battalion Grenadier regiment had 2 battalions -4 co. fusilier ea and 1 battalion ( 4 companies ) grenadier.
The above presentation descrip. does not seem to be correct?

I failed to specify these are described as Pavlov Grenadiers, so may have misled you.

This merely reflects my profound ignorance of anything before 16th June 1815. There is many an expert on Napoleonic Russians here, so I hope this prompts discussion. (Things have been a bit quite recently!)

God help the lads carrying those flag poles. I suspect physically impossible, even before the flag is attached. Certainly should develop that biceps!

From the Perrys themselves:

The regiment had three battalions, although it was probably only after 1813 when it was awarded guard status that they were all deployed together. Each battalion was made up of three fusilier companies and one grenadier company. Three quarters of the regiment, therefore, would be wearing the shorter fusilier mitre rather than the tall grenadier mitre. Officers didn't wear the mitre until 1828…. Each of the three fusilier companies per battalion had a standard. There was also a Life standard awarded to the regiment too.

As the uniform depicted is the later period design (as worn in 1812) then maybe its just a matter of the 'when'. No doubt the Tsars supporters can wade in.

Artilleryman is correct that until the Pavlovs were awarded guard status only the 1st and 3rd battalions would be deployed in the field while the 2nd battalion remained as a depot battalion. But during the 1812 invasion a number of the grenadier companies of the various garrison battalions were combined into converged grenadier and jager-grenadier battalions and, brigaded together, were deployed in the field.

Naw, I still beat you to it. I posted this on the Products page

TMP link

Indeed the New Perry Russians I posted solely there as well, but it got shifted. I suspect because it did actually lead to some useful discussion after all. (smirk…..a kind of self satisfied smile)
