Les Gardes d'Honneur (II)

I have finished the converting and painting of the Gardes d'Honneur, nicknamed 'the hostages'. The conversion has been made according to a previous post (See below Les Gardes d'Honneur for miniatures and facings).
Today is a cloudy and cold sunday, so the pictures were shot in the game table located in the basement, so excuse the poor light.

The pictures show the two squadrons from 2nd and 3rd Regiment des Gardes attached, respectively, to the Empress Dragoons and the Grenadiers a Cheval of the French Imperial Guard.

Thes Grenadiers a Cheval are also shown charging accompanied from the young French cavalrymen. Although the Gardes d'Honneur do not fought well in the Campaign of Leipzig, they covered themselves in glory during the campaign of 1814 in France.


  1. Superb looking troopers there Rafa - can't wait to see them in action!

  2. They will fight in Sellerhausen... Regards
