By 1814, with forces of the 6th Coalition closing in things were getting very desperate for the French Empire. Looking even more raggedy than the Marie Louises in the previous post, here's some National Guard of the time. Conscription was expanded to a wider age range, and equipment was in short supply.
These are Perry National Guard figures and a Perry French mounted officer who is no doubt thrilled to be in charge of this rabble. Also included is a scrappy but enthusiastic one eared dog from Westfalia Miniatures.
The figures are in a variety of clothing and poses, from some to none in terms of military gear excepting that all are equipped with a musket and cartridge belt.
Kudos also to my wife who suggested they needed a dog, reminding me to start using the Westfalia dog pack I had forgotten I had. A nice addition to the unit I think.
