Grenadiers à Cheval Boursin

The latest addition to the forces of  le Grand-Duché de Gourmandie are some fierce looking cavalry in the form of 1er Escadron, Grenadiers à Cheval Boursin. This is a three squadron regiment of regular cavalry that has the premier date of establishment and thus sits atop the seniority list. The regiment sports black cuirasses, bearskins and red coats but each squadron has a different facing colour: 1er Escadron (bleu); 2e Escadron (vert); 3e Escadron (violet).

1er Escadron, Grenadiers à Cheval Boursin led by Chef d'Escadron Phillipe Langeron. Front Rank figures.

From the rear...seems they have nowhere to go!

 Chef d'Escadron Phillipe Langeron, a nouveau riche officer who is well-liked by his men (probably because of the ineffable charisma he exudes) but who is equally liked by the liquor merchants that follow the army!

Next up for le Grand-Duché de Gourmandie? The second battalion of Regiment d'Infanterie Roquefort (including the grenadier division) and two battalion guns.


  1. I just finished my Sipahis. we should get a game in soon!

  2. Fine looking fellows! But letting your senior cavalry regiment be commanded by a nouveau upstart? That's fine for those hussars! but really, have we no standards? ;^)

  3. James,

    That's not a problem, Langeron commands only this squadron. There are two more 8-figure squadrons coming and a regimental colonel who is from "older" money.
