    I finally started a very big project that have been on my sleeves for a few time now. It will depict ONLY Napoleon's ''Premier empire'' soldiers...from the Guard
    Here's a sneak peak for the moment.

    Great project, but not that simple, it will not be necessary to forget some regiments of this Imperial Guard, Battalion velites of Turin, Velites, Gendarmes of Ordonnance, Lancer of Berg .... And then the services related to the Imperial Guard, Guides, Geographers, Medecin ....
    A vast project that I will follow with attention and interest.

    ZC, merci pour l'intérêt. La pluparts de figurines seront de la marque Métal Modèles 54mm, mais je vais aussi avoir des tailles plus grandes et des bustes.
    Je vais besoin de vos connaissances en ce qui attrait l'artillerie de la garde, car je ne suis pas très familiarisé. J'ai eu comme cadeau le canon de 8 de la marque MM- et j'aimerai utiliser les figurines appropriées, de préférence celles que couvre les années
    1805-1808

    Hi Rod,
    I will put at your disposal all the docs and my little knowledge.
    The artillery of the Imperial Guard is not that simple.
    Choosing MM as a base is one of the best choices, but it will be necessary to look for others (Nemrod, Pegaso, Romeo Models, Chronos-Horses- etc.) the complements.
    Do not hesitate to contact me
    Sincerely yours.

    Merci Luc,

    I know about the limitations to recreate such action scene, special that I simply can not paint bad sculpted figures.
    Is on hold for the moment but I will definitely create something

    OK, perhaps not everyone likes them, but isn't just about everything Grande Armee covered by Historex (mix'n'match if necessary)?
    https://www.historexagents.com/specials/index.php#pricelist
    https://www.historexagents.com/specials/index.php#product-gallery

    Is the intention for a series of stand alone figures and busts rather than vignettes etc?
