I've had trouble seeing your pictures lately but finally all is revealed. They all look good but I particularly like the drummers, fifers and mounted officers, I hadn't really considered that art of tactic sets before but your command figures look great.

And what a splendid bunch those Tambour Majors are, they all look quite magnificent.

That's a lot of positive feeling, thank you my friends ! :-D

I'm starting now with the french foot artillery from Zvezda, there's also some metal models from "fine scale factory" bought many years before, everything on the 2 photos where the ambulance stand is made of metal, the rest is Zvezda's plastic figures and models.
So, there's :

-- 12 canons
-- 4 limber with horses
-- 7 limber without horses
-- 5 wagons with horses, including one in metal without horses
-- 1 ambulance
-- 106 figures (gun team)
-- 48 horses

The primer is made of Tamiya colors :
Horses : light Brown XF72, dark brown XF10, grey XF24, and white
artillery and wagons : Green XF26

The foot team is painted Vallejo 70809 Royal Blue with black wash and drybrysh (the base color mixed with 50% of white applied with a flat brush).

The team on horses received a black wash on their white trouser, followed by a drybrush Vallejo 70837 pale sand.
The jacket is Vallejo Andrea Blue 70841 with wash and drybrush. the jacket has some parts painted in Vallejo 70899 Dark Prusia Blue. Buttons and straps are white.

This reminded me greatly of my own horse drawn guns and riders that fell under the sweep
;-) of my painting brush in those far off days of silent colorful dipping.

Well done on you devoted progress.
Your painted things are certainly mounting up.
All in all,a real pleasure to view. :thumbup: BB

This is so massive and wonderful so I dread the day when you have finished this! But then you'll probably start a new project! :-D
