The Polish troops of the Grand Duchy of Warsaw were amongst the staunchest allies of France. They fought with traditional Polish dash and courage and in the knowledge that Napoleon was the best hope for a free Poland. The army of the Grand Duchy saw much hard fighting standing shoulder to shoulder with the French and added more than a touch of glamour to the scene in their square topped “Lancer Caps”.
Well Marcus Hinton obviously loved sculpting these figures and I’ve loved painting them too, see what you think...
The 8th Polish Regiment leave a Chateau in column of march.
They stop and deploy into column of attack.
Next they deploy into line.
What a fine looking body of men!
They are joined by the 1st Chevau-Legers-Lanciers of the Guard...
...and a very proud Marshal Poniatowski!
Time to put the pot of “Shadow Pink” away then, because my Polish contingent is now complete.
