    I did lots of work on the moumted officer of the line Cavalry.
    I decided to paimt him as the cavalry regiment Number 10th ( Former Royal-Cravates), this regiment was present at Valmy. 20170808_212437.jpg 20170808_212444.jpg Screenshot_20170808-172422.png

    Hi Daniel

    Like the officers ..lots nice choice of facing colours there .

    Drummer boy ..he really does look young and determined ..but brave looking straight ahead ....like the faded blue and the waistcoat ..nice touch .

    Looking at the horses , they certainly are well sculpted any thoughts on colours yet ?

    What are you using to paint the headwear ...just grays and washes ?

    Happy painting

    Thanks for sharing
