1er Bataillon / 21e Ligne


The 1st Battalion of the 21st Line Regiment,

In the Gross Gorschen scenario these are rated as “Line” even though they are “provisional” whatever that is. I have tried to find out but so far no luck. I presume it’s an reserve or amalgamated battalion since the Marie-Louise’s wouldn’t be of Line quality in May 1813.

The miniatures are Perry Miniatures with the exception of the mounted officer who is from Front Rank.

I have some mixed feelings about Perry Miniatures. The miniatures themselves are very good but the casting process leaves a lot to be desired. Mold lines, warping and loss of details, especially on the muskets are big issues. With that said I am still quite pleased with how these came out.
