Swiss 4th Line Infantry Sapper--single figure
Item Number: NAP0690
Swiss 4th Line Infantry Sapper
The Swiss Infantry were professional mercenary troops which made up part of the Grande Armee during the Napoleonic Wars. They were stalwart, well drilled and trained, professional soldiers who acquitted themselves well, so long as they were paid regularly. As the saying went, "No Money, No Swiss". T
hese are yet another addition to our Napoleon's Europe figure series aimed at targeting some of the less often depicted Nationalities of the conflict. We have created the Swiss 4th Line Infantry which were part of Napoleon's Russian Campaign most notably taking a key role at the Battle of Berezina. In total, there were four Regiments of Swiss Line Infantry in the service of the Emperor. The 4th is resplendent in their coats with blue facings making the Swiss very unique in appearance as part of the French Army where blues and greens typically dominated.
We sincerely hope you find them a worthwhile addition to our flagship figure series!
60mm Hand Painted figure for collectors from the Napoleon's Europe product range.
