    You make it look easy though it's not, at least in this scale.That is a genuine characterisitic of a man who has mastered his art and you have certainly mastered yours.Beautiful as usual.

    Thanks Kev, i learned that the secret on painting these horses is a well diluted paint( almost a wash) and select the right color for contrast.

    I finished the other side of the guidon.
    The inscription or motto would have sayed NOMEN LAUDESQUE MANEBUNT, fame and reputation stays.
    I need to retouch the pole , place it on the holster and built the hand holding it.... 20170622_230723.jpg 20170622_235412.jpg

    Thanks my friend, the 1779 order states that only 2 guidons were assigned per regiment.
    All of this changed and there ar enot many sources since the ragged arse revolutionaries burned most of them

    Very nice Daniel :). Other comprehensive vignette goes to the end. Great work. I love dioramas and vignettes, and your threads will always please me. I'm already looking forward (and I'm very curious) to your next project ;).

    Cheers Borek :)
