The Guards brigade

I decided to start with something really simple, the Guards brigade. It is a very symbolic unit, well-know for their resilience at Inkermann.

This brigade had three battalions, under General Bentick:
3rd Bat, Grenadier Guards
1st Bat, Coldstream Guards
1st Bat, Scots Guards

I used the Pendraken Guards, simply because they were easy to paint , in their greatcoats.  Sadly, there was only one standard bearer, so I made one little conversion cutting the rifle from one of the guards to replace it with a pin. It should do the trick.

Sorry about the surexposed pictures, but the light is a bit tricky today. Anyway, what you have here are 3 units of 3 bses each, which roughly equals to 2700 men, according to my rules. They would also be rated as Elite for morale purposes, equipped with rifles. As for special abilities, they would be steadfast, and would probably have the good fire discipline. Tough hombres, but not very numerous. For instance, a snigle Russian regiment would be 12 bases strong. And a Russian brigade has two such regiments...


  1. Looking good, I am hoping to do some guards at 28mm next year.
