New Napoleonic French Imperial Guard Head of Column Available From Warlord Games

I love a parade. I mean, I was in Marching Band for many years, and so I’ve participated in quite a few. The pomp. The pageantry. The colorful uniforms. Granted, it’s not just a parade when it’s during a campaign. Those long lines of troops aren’t just showing off. They’re headed to the battlefield. At the head of the column is usually a band and certainly drummers, letting people know that the military is on the move. Warlord Games has a new Napoleonic French Imperial Guard Head of Column set available to order, to give your Black Powder games a bit more ceremony.

New Napoleonic Releases Available From Warlord Games

One thing with miniatures is that you can change just a couple things on a figure and get a whole new miniature out of it.

By changing the type of weapon on a gun carriage, for example, you can get several different types of artillery piece. Or, if you change who’s at the head of a mule train, you get a different-looking diorama piece. Well, with the new sets of figures from Warlord Games for Black Powder.

Pre-Orders for French Chasseurs a Cheval Light Cavalry now from Warlord Games

Cavalry has always been an important part of an army. Napoleon certainly knew that, and so he made heavy use of the Chasseurs a Cheval (or mounted hunters, if you will) to scout and raid the enemy. In the days before satellites and even aircraft, you simply had to go and look for the enemy to see where they were at. And having a group of well-trained riders on very fast and light hordes was the best way to get that done. You can now bring these figures to your tabletop to aid in your much smaller battles, as Warlord Games has started taking pre-orders for the plastic Chasseurs a Cheval box set.
