    I notice now that a base is missing at the gate. add a strip of plasticard to increase realism.

    I was abke to find a matching piece to add at the bottom of the gates, repainted them and place them temporarily in that position.
    Added some ground work and placed the swiss guard inside, the french guard at the entrance door looking at the sergeant who is adressing the guardsman. 20181023_210030.jpg 20181023_210040.jpg 20181023_210050.jpg

    I have received the aristocrats i have ordered from foundry yedterday, one of them i am converting into King Louis XV, i have replaced the rather fat head by a more "Snobby" French likedness of the Monarch, made the wig with greenstuff and added the blue band and the cross of st spirit on its chest and lower end of the band.
    I have bought sone trees and added to the base, some pkants, ground and cobblestone ground. 20181024_214511.jpg 20181025_082045.jpg 20181025_235922.jpg 20181025_235927.jpg 20181025_235831.jpg portrait-louis-15f.jpg

    Gardes Francaises done, still waiting for the flags and paintimg 2 drummers at the moment.
    Placed the guards as King Louis XV just exited the Chateau, walked down the stairs and an officer is saluting the Monarch and presenting the troops for review afterwards 20181030_230647.jpg 20181030_230658.jpg 20181030_230713.jpg 20181030_230740.jpg
