I make that out to be 150 foot and 3 mounted . . . a very substantial body of troops, sir. Very good!

Merci du compliments!
"I make that out to be 150 foot and 3 mounted."

3 x 48 fig bns = 144 + 3 mounted, or just over 1/7 of the total infantry force. (1 garde regiment of 3 Bns, 1 Grenadier Regiment, ditto, IRs 1, 2 & 3, ditto, Garde Jaeger Bn, Schutzen Bn Nr 1)

Just to the right of IR 4 (looking black, but actually forest green), is a half-battalion of Schutzen Bn Nr 1. Next up, the Garde Regiment zu Fuss.

P.S. it warms my heart to see a few tricorns (and mitres)among all these shakos: is the Garde Regiment zu Fuss in 'Napoleonic but traditional' uniform, or a Lace Wars unit?
And btw, what about the *Hannunter* Garde Regiment zu Fuss? ... (:

Cheers,
Jean-Louis

Jean-Louis,

They are the nucleis of GRzF c1750 - the remainder of the regt is still boxed - but they will (some day, maybe not tomorrow, but some day) march off the table. |The Hannunter GIR for 1750 is in the same condition. The 1800s GIR I have yet to make a decision on which figures to use.

Sir, I beg to differ . . . 144 foot + 3 mounted + 6 standard bearers (let's not forget them).

I repeat, 150 foot + 3 mounted . . . and it remains a very substantial body of troops.
