Black Powder: Late French Line Infantry 1812-1815
En avant! The cry went up in hundreds of French throats as the blue columns marched forward on the battlefields across Europe. The all conquering French line infantry ‘Les Bleus’ used a combination of massed columns, fast manoeuvre, and firepower to shatter the armies of Prussia, Austria, Spain and Russia, culminating in a death struggle against Wellington and Blucher’s alliance at Waterloo in 1815.
Well led and confident of victory, the average French soldier swept almost all foes before them, living off the land as they marched.
Beyond the glory of victory over their foes, there was the chance of medals, promotion to the guard, or even acknowledgement from the Emperor himself!
These models are dressed in greatcoats worn so often on the field of battle to save the smart uniform for the inevitable victory parade…
Each boxed set contains:
24 plastic French infantry (including options for adding Grenadiers and Voltigeurs)
Metal command group (2 officers, drummer, standard bearer)
Standard poles and finials
Full colour background leaflet containing several flags.
Note: Models supplied unassembled and unpainted
