These are my Garde Chasseurs a Pied, which consists of the 1er and 2eme Regiments, each of 2 Battalions of 36 foot and 6 deployed skirmishers, and a small band of drums. All photos very click-able.
The 1er (below) are led by General de Brigade Cambronne, he of the alleged “Merde!” incident at Waterloo (which I first read about in Zola’s “Les Miserables”, as a teenager).
The 2eme (below) are led by Général de Brigade Baron Pelet-Clozeau.
The two Brigades are led by General de Division Michel, who was killed, leading the attack of the Chasseurs a Pied at Waterloo.
All the foot figures are Victrix, and the mounted command Perry’s. The foot were painted by 3-4 different painters (the majority by Shaun Duncan), although all were stained, detailed, varnished and based by me. I painted a few foot, the officers and the Tambour Major and assembled drums (below).
Later, I plan to add additional stands with the earlier style of flags with the diamond design, and the later simpler flag used at Waterloo (for the 1st Regiment only; the second won’t have a flag).
I’m currently working on the 2/1 Grenadiers a Pied and hope to finish those by the weekend.
