Vive L'Empereur: Line Infantry (1)

After varnishing and basing the French Imperial Old and Young Guard figures in my collection of Del Prado pre-painted 25/28mm-scale Napoleonic figures, I decided to move onto the French Line Infantry. There are quite a few of them, so I am doing them in batches.

There are eight bases of Line Infantry in the first batch, each base having three figures.


  1. Bob,
    It's interesting that the French are modelled in a firing pose, suggesting a defensive posture, rather than the march attack pose that would symbolise advancing in column.
    But they look very good and will doubtless fight well for the Corsican Ogre!

  2. Arthur1815 (Arthur),

    Almost all the French infantry figures are in a firing pose (either standing or kneeling), although there are a few in an advancing pose ... which is my favourite.

    I am still on track to complete varnishing and basing my collection of Napoleonic figures by the bicentenary of the Battle of Waterloo ... but it might be a close run thing!

    All the best,
