Newly Painted Grenadier Samples - AWI

New Fife & Drum British Grenadiers

Here are the first pictures showing how the new Fife & Drum British Grenadiers look when painted. These are really fun to paint and I am stunned to see how great they look once painted. I will probably base my grenadiers 8 to a stand and include one NCO, one drummer, and six marching grenadiers. The converged grenadier battalion in my army will be either 32 figures (4 stands of 8) or 48 figures (6 stands of 8), using a 1:10 figure to man ratio.

The reverse view of the British Grenadiers. Note the tumplines worn on campaign instead of back packs. The Grenadier Drummer can also be used with centre company regiments. We have the centre company drummer wearing a brimmed hat. The marching grenadier also comes in light kit with no tumpline.


  1. Gorgeous, especially the drummer!

    Best Regards,


  2. Lovely stuff! Very nice minis, great painting.

    I also admire the vegetation (maize?), what's that made from, please?


  3. Herb Gundt made the corn fields. The materials can be found at craft stores such as Michaels, they come in foot long lengths but I don't know what they are called.

  4. They do look good - sculpting seems nice and crisp, and the clarity you get on the white and red makes them pop!

  5. Thanks DAF, a great background to the very nice minis.

  6. Those grenadiers are exquisite! A nice casting, but your paint job REALLY makes them pop. Keep it up!
