They are in the shop as a test and we will see how the interest are in those figures since they come with a monthly fee for us.
But if there is something special you want to have, so please send us an email on info@speira.net so can we see what we can do!

Just when I think I have enough French Imperial Guard grenadiers! Obviously no collection would be complete without figures like this of such extreme detail and realism. Please write social security on my behalf and explain why I am in need of more than what i get monthly. It's torture when you can't afford something like this! I will someday though, count on it.

Great figure, can't wait for more :yeah: :yeah: :yeah: :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:

Maybe just one little thing... with fixed bayonnet on the musket.. because i think most can cut of a bayonnet on a figure ... but i have problems to fix one on a finished figure.. :oops: :oops:

what a wonderful figure!
I agree with Dicker Thomas that the bayonet would be better. At our Waterloo project (James Cowan et al) we could still use quite a bit of French Guard to defend Plancenoit, so please think of us! can't wait to see what poses you come up with.

Thank you for your thoughts and feedback! We understand the bayonet is nice to have on the musket. But like you say its a small thing and if it not should break during production (so many have) or transport, it need to be unrealistic thick so it will not look as good, so we have decided to only have the bayonet in the scabbard where it is safer. But we can make it an extra option!

Do you plan some French guard grenadiers casualties by chance?

Yes, casualties will be made, I think there is just two planed at the moment but probably more will be made in the future.

I broke off my first bayonet today and I didn't even realize when it happened. It was a Spiera miniature that I had even added greenstuff to thicken up the blade. It's a casualty figure for a diorama and honestly it looks fine without it. They did actually lose them in real life or have them broken off so not everyone needs to have one. At least that is serendipity's opinion on the subject.

@konrad can you please send us an email with the thoughts and perhaps some picture so can we see what can be done.

@DickerThomas
Thanks for the tips about old guard chasseurs we will look into it, as you said they are very similar.
I see that you are also interested in the samurai area, so please feel to send us an email as well with your thoughts of what you think is missing.

Please email to info@speira.net

And it would be nice to have some Grenadiers and Chasseurs in overcoat, especially for Waterloo.
Continue the fantastic work!

Samurais are close to our hearts as well.

At the battle of Sekigahara - One thing that history books don't mention are that 2016 two crazy Swedes joined the red devils and fired with muskets while Ii Naomasa and Fukushima Masanori crashed into the center of the Western army’s defensive line.

Hello Helen and Christian, :thumbup:

yes.. I'm also a samurai-fan and visited Japan 11 years ago..

and I'm also a producer of samurai-figures in 1/72, for the Sengoku and Imjin-War Time (at Hagen Miniatures and another shop)

@Kekso and Konrad.. I think you want some samurai with no armor, only a kimono.. with katana and wazikashi.. maybe a Yari or Bow and arrows... like in the movie "The seven Samurais" .. maybe also some Robbers or Ronin.. ?? :oops: :oops: :oops:

Not sure about Konrad but it is yes for me. And some civilians from thst period to create some everyday scene from feudal Japan (with samurai ofcourse). But I'm not sure how many buyers will be interested of that. I'm afraid too few. And I'm not big fan of metal figures, sorry.
