In a slow but steady procession, units for the 1799 project keep marching off the painting desk as work progresses on the Montebello 1800 OB. While the Consular Guard did not make an appearance at Montebello, the Grenadiers a Pied were present a week later at Marengo to help snatch victory from the jaws of defeat. The Consular Guard saw service in other battles so these thirteen figures were popped into the painting queue in a move towards elitism.
Figures are AB Miniatures and expertly sculpted as expected. Is there an AB figure I don't like? Cannot think of one. Work continues on fielding units for Montebello with Austrian Grenz and French legere on the workbench.
