There were some of the most formidable men at Wellington’s disposal and could be counted on in a pinch at any battle regardless of the enemy. These chaps forwent the typical red uniform of the British soldier in favour of a green one that earned them the nickname the ‘Sweeps’ or ‘Grasshoppers’ from the French.
Each of them was armed with the powerful Baker rifle and they also had fantastically brutal looking sword bayonets for sticking their enemies. If you’re looking for some men (and a dog) to inspire your troops on the battlefield you can’t go far wrong with these folks.
Will you get these lads?
