    I recently finished this one, done in acrylics. It's an oldie but a goodie but was a real bear to assemble. Both hands were attached to the flag rather than the arms. I thought the arms were centered during the gluing process but you can see where his right hand looks a little funny. Dry fitting went a lot smoother. Any comments & criticisms greatly appreciated.

    This is one of my fave periods and a figure I hope to get around to, so thanks for posting and for the tips on the assembly

    I have always liked this figure that is so at odds with the linear tactics and common impression of how the fighting took place at that time. I like the treatment of the red coat. Thanks for sharing.

    iirc it's 54mm Soldiers SGF, available in the UK from Historex Agents.

    Thank you all for your replies. I appreciate the kind words. The photos don't really show a lot of the shadows & hi-lites because I'm still learning how to use my camera, as well as my brushes.

    This one's been in my gray army for quite a while. I think I bought it, possibly on ebay, back around 2002 or 3 because the pose caught my eye. Even then, I think it was already maybe 2 or 3 years old. It's a 54mm from Soldiers, #SP-2B. I just looked around on some of the retail websites but didn't find it anywhere. I'm sure there are a few sites I missed but looks like ebay might be your best bet.

    Thanks again. Mike
