The Arquebusiers de Grassin


Straight from the workbench to you.

I just completed a couple of test figures for a long mooted unit of the famous Arquebusiers de Grassin. Famous? Well wargame-famous anyway from Charles Grants' book on the Battle of Fontenoy where they held the Bois de Berry against the 42nd Foot.

I think I have about 16 miniatures in all sorts of paint as I probably bought them 25 years ago.

That's changing now as they are all getting a repaint and rebase to my current standard and will be fleshed out to the full "Charge!" establishment of two 12-figure companies plus various officers, NCOs, musicians, standard-bearers, whores, jugglers and mountebanks.

Flags will be by David:

Cracking looking figure and such a lovely uniform, really be good to see the finished unit.

A classic gaming unit. My AdG are SSMs (metal) and also organised for CHARGE! But those rules make them really lethal so I’ve had to restrain them a bit.

Cheers Donnie.

I am looking to making some real progress over the weekend.

Rob, yes, I've heard that the Light Infantry need a little hobbling.

All the best,
