    Hello folks,
    New project on my bench, la Maison du Roi troops.
    This will include the gardes Suisses, Francaises , the Chevaux Légères , gendarmes and Mousquetaires du Roi.
    I bought an Eurooean chateau from Sarissa to be constructed, it is for a WW2 set up but with few mods could well be one of the many chateaus or buildings at Versailles.
    Cheers!

    I have started working on the Chateau, i did assembled the first and second floor , i have sealed them with flat varnish, then primed with self etching primer.
    I have painted the walls, i used a grey blue for the lower floor, i jave used a pale yellow on half the top floor and the other hald a pale pink since different rooms and bedrooms traditionally would have been upstairs.
    I decided to have the door opened and sunce that expose the floor, i had to add a ramp from the door to the other end, used the same materia leftover l from the kit, added some wood sticks to have the proper height to make it even with the entrance door level.
    Painted the floor to resemble tile and added a piece of red cloth as a carptet for the entrance. 20181007_125257.jpg 20181007_143308.jpg 20181007_145827.jpg 20181007_161605.jpg

    I have put clear tape on the inside windows to resemble glass, i have also got rid of the iron reils on the entrance door , that way i can make a rather more 18th century look . 20181007_193219.jpg
