Nassau Grenadiers 25mm Minifigs S Range

The final napoleonic unit from my recent painting spree takes to the field.  These are Minifigs S Range Nassau infantry, in the form of Grenadiers.  They were originally from the late Eric Knowles collection and were quite nicely painted.  I have touched them up a little and added a bit more detail, before mounting them on new bases.  

I am not sure Nassau had Grenadier battalions, probably just companies, but I will use a little wargamers license here.  

I have some Nassau line infantry on the work bench made up from French figures.  These along with some Dutch and Belgians will form a Netherlands division


  1. If the various vintage manufacturers' catalogues are anything to go by (which are more often than not conspicuously lacking Nassau fusiliers), all-grenadier Nassau battalions were de rigeur in the 60s and 70s. These are just terrific Bob.
    Best regards

    1. I think you are correct. I took a look at my old Minifigs catalogue and the only figures listed under Nassau are Grenadiers. I will use French figures for the Fusiliers.
