PERRY MINIATURES: French Young Guard Tiraileurs
I've finally finished basing my PERRY MINIATURES French Young Guard Tiraileurs. I really like these miniatures. I've always been fascinated by this Corps of Napoleon's Imperial Guard. They are sort of like a Napoleonic version of the German 12th SS Panzer Division 'Hitlerjugend'.
Anyway, the PERRY's have done an excellent job on modelling these lads. I really like the way that they seem to be leaning into the withering fire of the enemy (probably Prussians). They really appear to be determined to get stuck in.
I've based them on 50mm wide by 40mm deep bases.
The flag is an excellent GBM Flag. A real piece of fine art IMHO.
I'll get around to a solo game of LASALLE or FoG-N soon I hope. Something 1815 probably.
