    About time you posted some of your fabulous works on here. I was only think the other night when you sent me the photos that you need to show them for all to see but know this is something you do not do often,, time to change ;)

    Very nice work Keith, I particularly like the drummer and the base work but your handling of the foul weather cover on the British Guardsmen is also very, very good. You need to post more often, I’m working on a diorama of the Scots Greys at Waterloo in 30mm, it’s driving me bonkers, so many figures and conversions, would have had it ready for the White Rose bash but I guess that will have to wait for a year.

    Exellent work.

    But ... this is not a Guards drummer, despite the fact that it is stated on the plate on the figure stand.

    Firstly: the shako on the barrel, although it is similar in shape to the guards, nevertheless, it has the emblem of the line grenadier regiment in front, and not the guards - a grenade with three flames (the guards infantry had a double-headed eagle on the shako).

    Secondly: with a red collar and shoulder straps, this drummer could have been a Guardsman from the Life Guards of the Preobrazhensky Regiment, but the drummer's sewing is white, but should be yellow from double braid, in addition, there should be guards collar patches on the cuffs and collar, and it is not.

    Well, I don't understand what kind of gaiters over boots this fighter has. In the Russian infantry of that period, they either wore white linen pantaloons with peaks that covered the toe of the boot, but the shape of the visor was completely different, or wore cloth pantaloons (for bad weather) with leather leggings sewn below the knees, but these leggings did not have visors, besides , they had a slit on the sides and were fastened with buttons.

    It turns out that this figure is more suitable for the company drummer of the most ordinary line grenadier regiment (the difference between the regiments was only in letters on the shoulder straps) or for the company drummer of the grenadier company of the line infantry regiment consisting of the 1st in the division (red shoulder straps and yellow numbers on them division numbers). But, some of the seams of the uniform should have white tape, similar to what is shown in the picture of this battalion drummer of an infantry regiment. Well, with leggings on trousers will need to be corrected.
