Ok guys, as promised, the new Grenadiers soon to be launched as part of the new 18mm Napoleonic range from Khurasan Miniatures.
If, like me, you're into the Peninsular War you are going to need Grenadiers and Carabiniers decked out in their finery. The French army in the Peninsula regularly combined their elite companies and used them en masse. The battles of Vimiero, Fuentes d'Onoro and Albuera are classic examples and indeed the Connaught Rangers thought they were up against Napoleon's Guard Grenadiers at Fuentes when fighting close up and personal with these bear-skinned warriors in the back streets of the village.
Once the Carabiniers are out, all you need do is get yourself a Grenadier officer, Mounted Colonel and drummer and you'll have a lovely combined Grenadier battalion to throw in to any awkward situation.
Next up the comparison shots with other makes in my collection.
