Napoleon's Old Guard Grenadiers 28mm
These are Victrix 28mm Old Guard. Ordered from Caliver Books and arrived in rapid time (ordered on the Wednesday and got here Friday morning). I was reluctant to have another foray into plastics, but I'd worked out how much it was going to cost me to finally complete the French army I always wanted and noticed my finances would be stretched. Anyway, I was also pleasantly surprised that Caliver were offering free postage to the UK on orders over £15. Out of one box I could put two regiments together and still have some extras to mix in with some fusilier heads and bodies I head left over from ages ago to do another line infantry unit or two in greatcoats. I'm also getting used to handling the new camera phone I got for Xmas which will hopefully show in the improved photos I'm uploading on here!
