Another unit finished this time the Grand Dukes Foot Guards. The Grand Duke maintains a standing force of 500 footmen half of whom are crossbowmen. The foot guards are responsible for guarding the Grand Duke’s palace and his family during peace time and providing the backbone of the Duchy’s infantry in war time.
Joining criteria for the foot guard are strict candidates must be physically fit, disease free, at least 5’10”, no physical defects and have all their own teeth. As a standing force the foot guards drill constantly when not on guard duty and as a result are able to perform more complicated battlefield manoeuvres and formations than most of the duchy’s foot soldiers.
These miniatures are basically a box of Fireforge Teutonic infantry straight out of the box with one or two head swaps from the Fireforge Templar set for variety.
