THE RAMBLINGS OF A FRENCH CANADIAN WARGAMER

2nd battalion, 8th infantry regiment, Duchy of Warsaw

Here is the second battalion painted by Roger for my collection, meant to represent the 2nd battalion of the 8th infantry regiment of the Duchy of Warsaw. 


For those you missed it, pics of the first battalion can be found here . This one is in the traditional march attack, and again Rog has done a beautiful job. I finished basing it a while ago, but in a moment of stupidity/absentmindedness I glued the damn flag upside down! So I had to reorder a flag from GMB and carefully remove the upside down flag to put the new one. Doh! 



I intend to start painting another battalion soon, the 2nd battalion of the 1st regiment (I already painted the 1st battalion) so to have 4 battalion. Add a artillery battery in there and I should have a small Polish brigade for my next game, once all those knee problems are behind me.



and a pic of the whole 8th regiment

  7. Great figures and paintjob. Defuinitely tempting me to expand my existing GDW forces. They are quite useful from 1809 - 1813, and were dedicatd to the cause of the Emperor, and of course, Polabnd!

    1. Thanks! I really do find they are one of the most underappreciated force in Napoleonic wargaming.
