French Old Guard Grenadier Guards

Of all the French infantry figures I like the guards the best. The uniform is pretty accurate and the figures are nicely proportioned. Here is a group from my original collection. Over the years these figures have been painted in may guises - originally as saxons, but in the 1980s they were returned to their original French blue:
Once again I did not obtain command figures for my French troops, although I am certain they were available in the Ros range.
