    Thank you kindly, yes indeed - I have some base scenery to make including a rutted roadway that was made for me and some rough terrain, also some trees and grass, the figures are going to be cut from there bases so they are just figures on their feet - they will be pinned underneath and super glued in place on the dio.

    Not sure what you mean about the Imperial Lace, the 55th 1reg ligne had a Green jacket decorated with Yellow bands and chevrons - Red collar and cuffs White trousers Grey lower garter - very similar uniform to the rank and file ligne units.

    Evening all, please find one 55th ligne Flag Barer (he rescued it after the officer carrying it was shot) Eagles are very important so they must be protected at all cost.
    He still needs his rucksak and flag.

    Hi W

    That flag looks good in place , is it painted or a printed version

    Nice result

    Happy benchtime

    Its the printed paper version - they just need cutting out gluing and shaping then a bit of touch up and a few flat coats to kill the sheen.

    Hi all, I am still about just having a small break while I work on an old model kit of a small warship I made years ago, it needed a re paint so its giving me something else to work on for now.

    I will return very soon to start work on my dio aspect of my build - starting with building the farm compalex of LHS.

    Evening all, I am back working on my little project, the figures are taking a break while I start work on the buildings in the shapeof the La Haye Sainte farm, this is an MDF Flat pack kit that is Laser cut and very nice - I do not know if it would be appropriate or interesting for me to continue with the build log for the farm dio in here - will have to let me know.

    I think a build log of the buildings is a good idea. All part of the diorama.
