    Here is my finished product. Had such a good time on this piece. So much inspiration and reference available. Not to mention , I've been a fan of this painting since I started doing miniatures over 30 years ago. Never did I think I would be able to do my own one day.
    I took artistic liberty, and added the Austrian soldier. Even added real feathers to his hat. Just wanted to separate mine from the rest a little. Hope you guys enjoy. Thanks for looking.

    Hi the
    Great bit of painting there love the horse and the uniform colours are really nicely done .

    I have the MMM bust ( no horse !) tempted to put the sword in a scabbard and give him a pistol instead ....mind you adding the front part of the horse ( like Jimbo's Scots Gray in the March FOTM ) woukd be interesting ..Mmmmm...thinking !

    Thanks for sharing

    Nap

    Why not put a piece into the FOTM as well ?

    Very nice scene indeed. As I wrote, the idea I really like, the composition is beautiful and hilarious. Work on the pedestal is excellent, the terrain is perfect. And paint is great too. To summarize - a beautiful piece that will adorn your exhibition. Great work.(y)

    I like the composition of this vignette. There are so many details to find. And on top a great painted chasseur. Perfect!!
    PS: Thanks for letting the austrian grenadier alive ;)
