The Guards are coming!!

Following on (sort of) from this mornings post about Guards being a popular line for Toy Soldier manufacturers  I've faced Guards units twice in the wargaming table and both times I was on the loosing side. This picture was from a game Posties Rejects played earlier in the year; The Battle of Mackenzie Ridge

These units kept steamrollering on and hardly halted in their advance, even when charged in the flank by cavalry (ok, Cossaks, but even so!). Not only are they tough SOB's they also look damn fine in their red tunics and Bearskin hats.


  1. What great game that was!! Although they're not guards, but Elite Scots regts!

  2. Its the ranks of Bearskins that fooled me... bloody indestructible buggers! As I recall we didn't like being on the receiving end of those fella's...or indeed the whole bloody British army with their longer ranged guns. Most unsporting!


Thank you for leaving a comment. I always try to reply as soon as I can, so why not pop back later and continue the conversation. In the meantime, check out my YouTube channel Miniature Adventures TV
