Giant Commission VI -- French Guard Infantry

Here is the last of the French infantry, 72 members of the Imperial Guard.  I used the invaluable Historie and Collections book as my main resource, with additional details drawn from Rousselot.  Tony Barton's sculpting really shines here, as he depicts the guard in all the glory of their full dress.

Grenadiers of the Guard

Chasseurs of the Guard

 Fusilier-Grenadiers of the Guard

Tiralleurs of the Guard

Voltiguers of the Guard

Next up will be the French artillery.  I have painted 588 French infantry in 2 1/2 months.  It will be nice to have a change of pace.
