Item Number: 54PNF05
Peninsular War French Line Fusiliers in shako (1808–1814)
The set contains 9 model soldiers comprising of 1 officer and 8 fusiliers. The heads and arms are interchangeable to enable the assembly of different action poses.
There are a number of significant differences in the appearance of the fusiliers as opposed to the Grenadiers that requires of us to do new sculpts and toolings.
- Grenadiers are taller and wear the moustache.
- Shako replaces the bicorne in 1808. Shako plumes and cords are abolished in 1810.
- Fusiliers do not have fringed epaulettes.
- Fusiliers have only one shoulder cross-belt for the cartridge bullets; with the bayonet scabbard attached.
We kept the same postures as grenadiers as the different companies often move in unison in battle. They are designed as i) defensive firing line and ii) advancing.
