AUSTRIAN GRENADIERS 1798-1815
Grenadiers were part of the Line regiments, however they were mostly brigaded together in combined Grenadier battalions. They proudly wore their distinctive fur mitres and moustaches.
Each box contains 56 plastic figures: 48 infantry, 2 officers, 2 drummers, 2 standard bearers, and 2 lovely mounted colonels. The infantry can all be in marching poses but we do have some arms to enable you to make some figures, firing, loading and advancing with leveled musket or at porte.
We have included two types of backpack in the sets. The first type has a bayonet attached. The second type has a bayonet and sword. This is due to the fact Grenadiers and some Landwehr carried swords and bayonets, whilst the ordinary infantry simply carried a bayonet. The backpack has the water-bottle, bayonet, and cartridge box attached. This enables a greater level of detail on these items and prevents undercut issues. They are very easy to glue on with no tiny parts.
Finally, in each set there are two flags: a regimental flag and a colonel's flag. There will be the 1792, 1804, and 1806 patterns. The earlier 1792 pattern was used by some units up to 1815.
