Many are the arguments that have raged amongst the lower ranks of my well-read gaming boffins concerning the precise shape, taper and lean of an Imperial Guardsman’s bearskin, but as so few moth-eaten examples exist…what I say goes!
Two very famous photos of the real bearskins do exist, worn by men who fought for their Emperor wearing their immaculate full-dress uniforms and it is these handsome fellows who form the basis of Fizzer’s impressive Imperial Guardsmen, brushed and fulsome in their full-bodied bearskins.
Our Guardsman are available in gaiters or campaign attire, with billowing overalls for the Grenadiers and rolled up trousers for the Chasseurs…now there’s something new and racy for the connoisseur.
