While this four battalion regiment has already seen service in the recent San Martino battle, it only now makes it into a pass-in-review. These 48 figures form the four battalions of the Sardinian 2nd Grenadier Regiment. Figures are from Lancashire Games' excellent range of 15mm figures. I find the Sardinian sculpts not as handsome as either the French or Austrian infantry in the same range but good figures, nonetheless. For me, a batch of 48 figures is about the largest group of 15mm figures I care to tackle at one time at the painting table. Working this quantity is painful in process but satisfying when completed.
In their first outing in battle at San Martino, the grenadiers performed superbly. Attacking without fear, they drove the opposition before them and charged across a stream to engage and defeat the enemy. Beginner's luck?
When expanding the OB to encompass more of the San Martino action, I realized that additional units are needed to complete the Sardinian OB. More artillery and grenadiers will be required. Not many. Perhaps two more battalions of grenadiers and two or three guns. Expect to see these recruits working their way through the painting queue.
