French Imperial Guard. Grenadiers in campaign dress.
This was a solo rules test based on the Prussian Guards’ assault on the heights of St. Privat. All figures are Old Glory 15mm. Rules are home made and a work in progress.
I had to use some Bavarian and Wurtemburg allies as I do not have enough Prussians.
