Very cool Royalists! It seems that some of them were not too eager to stick around once the war ended.

Very nice indeed.

As a suggestion when you deploy cotton wool for smoke effects try warming it first.

This makes it into whisps which are much more smoke like.

I have found that less is more so to speak.

Best wishes,

Thamk you very much for your comments!
Yes, I feel strange when I use a little boy in a unit...
And indeed, the flagbearer seems very dynamic. The other one has fallen while another soldier holds him, but it's not very clear in the photos.
Thank you for the advise Chris, how can I warm the cotton?

Great work.

Always really nice work here. The flagbearer is a really nice conversion, as are the rest. Many of these fellows didn't stick around - the part of Canada just south of where I live along Lake Ontario was heavily settled by Loyalists but I had never seen this distinctive green uniform before.
One really small comment, but on such beautiful work I would be inclined to run a bead of colour along the flag edges to cover the white join.

Thank you for asking.

Warm the cotton wool with a hair dryer or thin out the strands and breathe on it.

Best wishes,

Very nicely painted figures and it's good to see a subject that's a bit out of the ordinary.

The standard bearers are excellent.

Thank you very much for your words.
Bill, thank for the information about the loyalist, and yes, your right, the flags I have done are very basic; I have to improve them, not only the white edges but to add cords to them too; I will try to study how...
Chris, thank you about how to warm cotton, sincerely I used synthetic fiber..
And yes, I need to stop painting red English soldiers!!
Graeme, I enjoy a lot thinking about how to interchange arms legs and heads, I think is a very creative stage!
Thank you again, your comentaries and visits encorage me to continue...
Antonio.

Beautifully done. The faces are handled so nicely and I love the helmets at this stage - something still vaguely medieval about them. And I would agree with you, the Italeri are often beautifully done and PSR has to work hard to find criticisms sometimes.

Thank you Bill, I agree with you, this figures are very well sculpted, and I like specially the dynamic poses of horses. Thank you CNP again;I admire you working capacity... I have some artillery units half-done; yes the IMEX artillery sets...with the figures bigger than the infantry (a big problema for me) handle the smallest guns I have never seen before¡( i have chaged them…)

Thank you very much Rich!
Of course CNP!...with your works...it's impossible not to stay motivated!
...but usually to finish a half-made bunch is very cumbersome...
