Young Guard


After a whole year's delay, I've returned to my Napoleonic project.  Here are three battalions of Young Guard Tiralleur recruits, painted by David Davies, that I'm finishing so that they can join the finished battalion in the foreground.  They are on temporary bases.  Once they are done I'll have enough French minis to fight a division level battle.

Napoleonics are a tricky distraction from my passion for Ancients, but sometimes a little variety is necessary!
