This unit didn't make it to the big game but I've finished them now, it's a rather understated uniform I think but I do like them, since my cataract operation in December I'm having to re learn how to paint and can't see close up like I did before, so I think they're alright but I'm not entirely sure! Like virtually all my Imperial guard figures these are metal and therefore second hand, the previous owner had picked them up second hand with their black acrylic paint worn off in various places and with only the eagle bearer apart from the rank and file, I converted/promoted one of those chaps into a command figure, the trumpeter was a Foundry figure ( part of a rather varied eBay French Napoleonic command purchase ) who matches his Perry cousins in size very well ,(one of the sword at the ready chaps took his place guarding the Emperor, the Foundry horse was definitely diminutive compared to the Perry horses) I cut his carbine off and gave him a spare plastic trumpet hand, like Keith in my hurry to get the unit done I painted him green, only realising my mistake later, still repainted he's done and a rather dapper light blue!
The flags are by GMB designs and very nice they are too, bases by Warbase. next up? More guard cavalry I think!
All the best
