Good evening gentlemen. Here you are my last Napoleonic unit, a company of fusiliers-grenadiers of the imperial guard, i.e. a Middle Guard regiment attached to the Grenadiers pied.

More pictures and comments, including a small painting tutorial, here:

very nice painting, I like how you treated the white trousers, waistcoat and gaiters, well done.

So very nice!
The brown tinted white works so much better than the way too usual gray tinted one that tends to see most use.

Great paint job, but I'm very disappointed in HaT's French infantry. That marching step is waaaay to long a stride, and they give us plumes but no gaiters. The Legere Infantry sets are great, but the line and the guard seem half baked.

To make my Fusilier Grenadiers, I've decided to use the Zvezda OG Grenadiers with head swaps from the Zvezda artillery set and hand made plumes.

Then I can swap back the bearskins onto the artillerymen, do a little sculptural work on those, and make OG artillery. No waste on the Zvezda figs.

By the way, if anyone wants to trade something, like Zvezda OG Grenadiers, for my extra set of Zvezda Saxon Cuirassiers, I'd really like that.
