    WOW !!!!

    They look fantastic .......

    With the flags the figures really seem to come alive more ....the work on the uniforms are great particularly the red coat ...what colours did you use?

    Thanks for sharing

    I have received about 30 troopers and 6 drummers from Triguard Miniatures ( former Trident).
    I am paintin 16 of them as Gardes Francaises with 4 drummers.
    The drummers are in a marching pose, so, i clipped the rigjt leg, added some putty and re-inserted part of the legs.
    I have worked on one of the drummers and added the "grand Livery lace", lot of work but i think it will be worth it once it is done. 20190821_104108.jpg 20190821_104129.jpg 20190821_183805.jpg 20190821_183818.jpg

    I have prime them with army painter ultramarine blue, but it is too light of a color for their coats , so, end up painting the base color with Scale 75 Abyssal blue.
    Citadel mephiston red for the cufs and vesr. 20190818_212637.jpg 20190822_221700.jpg 20190823_082211.jpg

    I am adding a standard bearer, actually 2 of them.
    They are 2 figures from Front Rank, these chaps are Brits but will be converted to Frenchies.
    Uniform is AWI, so, it will require a lot of conversion.
    I like the idea of havimg unique pieces in a diorama. 20190823_082305.jpg 20190823_082337.jpg 20190823_082323.jpg

    I've made good progress today,
    Painted all the lace, worked on some turnbacks and paimted the edge of tje cartridge boxes in silver hrey color as stated for the guards.
    Note the cartridge boxes, unlike regular infantry, the guards used the fancy red russian leather.
    For that purpose i have used vallejo red leather, then added few washes of Citadel carrobourg crimson

    I was going trough my stuff yesterday and came across 2 figures that i may have left unprerpared somehow, so, decided to paint them as grenadier for the Swiss guards.
    Same uniform as fusilier except that they have carried a sabre intead of a strigjt sword.
    Added 2 grenadiers i had from the AWI troops and moded the bearfur hat to a more earlier period, added mustaches and some paint. 20190829_094211.jpg 20190829_094239.jpg
