This list is based on Bruce Weigle's ideas and our own views.
It is to be used for the supplement Bruce wrote for his "1870"
(see the "Guests"and "links"parts of the site)
Regulars in kepis/soft caps (all regiments except one, see below):
Franco Prussian War French infantry NCF 1 / NCF 2 (for the greatcoat)
and/or French Chasseurs NCF 3 (a good
alternative).(N.B. : we recommend both, but the decision is up to
you ; Bruce Weigle uses Chasseurs only).
Regulars in shakos (18th regiment only): although none of these
are perfect, try NCP 3 Prussian Jaegers or MAN1/ MAN 13 Austrian
Napoleonic infantry in shakos.
Even if the guards were not engaged, these may enter the field for"what
Guards (Livgarde) : in bearskins, French Napoleonic Old Guard attacking
MFN43 , or in soft cap (as above).
Dragoons : NCF 6 French Dragoons (Some attention to headgear needed)
or NCP 14 Bavarian Light Horse (idem)
Guard Hussars : MACW 4 Federal cavalry (not perfect, but say they
are in soft caps)
In case you need the only squadron of Heavies in the Danish Guard
Royal Horse Guard : NCP 9 Prussian Cuirassiers
ACW Gunners from MACW 5 and MACW 22 packs, with French 1870 guns
(NCF 7 artillery pack) and some ACW guns
Artillery train : NCF14 French Gun teams
Generals and Staffs :
Mounted French Officers from the FPW infantry packs, and MACW 4
