Re: Re: Re: French Grenadiers in Winter Dress

The men depicted are indeed chasseurs and not grenadiers. I am curious to see the actual figures. I would prefer them to be grenadiers as it is far easier to cover the plate then to paint one. But the are very welcome indeed. I would also like some grenadiers in shako's. I notice a standard bearer and a drummer, but I wonder if strelets will include both in the mini set. I guess they will go for a drummer like hat does.
I would be funny if they were chasseurs as that would mean that two sets, of this uncovered subject would be produced at the same time. :-)

Re: Re: Re: Re: French Grenadiers in Winter Dress

Let's hope that Strelets hasn't printed the boxes yet.

Btw, what a smart move to start producing figures in Winter outfit. I guess that less than 10% of all figures that we have for all periods from Romans to Modern would be suitable for warfare in the cold season.

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: French Grenadiers in Winter Dress

A very good idea indeed. Now I can buy lots of figures without having to worry much about the long cue of soldiers I still need to paint :-)

thanks!

In the pastI suggested frequently on this forum to create wintersets for the Russian campaign/french retreat.
So I'm very glad to see Strelets creating infantry ánd cavalry sets for this period.
And the guard-grenadiers/-chasseurs(?) will ofcourse find it's way to the many Waterloo-fans.
So I have to thank Strelets from the bottom from my heart!
Just another suggestion: Cossackcavalry in really thick warm clothes will be super for this campaign. With fur around their necks or on their heads etc.; all armed with simple lances.
Would be super!
regards and thanks again

Of course many generals avoided fighting then if they got the option.
An appropriate set might be of an army in winter quarters...

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: French Grenadiers in Winter Dress

Cossacks in winter clothing would be very welcome, they indeed just look so cool in fur. and its a great set for Strelets; what about a mixed infantry/cavalry set, would be really great.

Cheers,

and of course, I'm really looking forward your planned wintersets :)

Value-added cossacks

Plus throw in a few Bashkirs & Tartars with the cossacks....& maybe a priest with Icon & some Don cossack horse artillery: great set!
