French Grenadiers

There's several re-enactors on Facebook with excellent pages. This shot is from one called "Reenactment & History Photography" via the Incomparable page. I really like the campaign-y look to this and wonder if I shouldn't ban pure white from my French altogether. I think I may also make the five o'clock shadow the norm too.


  1. I always paint my own figures with the campaign look, this is a very nice photo, the reality is, if you took the men from the photo and put them on a real campaign for 6 months, marching up and down the peninsular, and fighting the odd battle, they wouldn't even look this spiffy.

  2. Very cool! I knew you could mix Bardin reg with habit veste uniforms :)! Best, Dean
