    Managed to get back to the bench to complete a little bit more on this piece,i had a change of heart and decided to alter the aright hand again holding the flag and have opted for the original look with the flag at a 45 degree angle,i was going to have it vertical,but its been bugging me lately but im happy with the angle version now.
    ive re basecoated the laurels in the flag corners,i will detail these on the next session,the blue has had a further base coat to the flag sections,this I will also begin on the next session.
    I recently saw a picture on the web of a Napoleonic carabinier with a blood stain down the left sleeve and I wanted to replicate this which I did with tiny bits of oil and citadel blood.
    I have also added a rank insignia to the left sleeve as well to give it a little more intrest.
    I have added some dirt to the sleeves as this was a carabinier on campaign and having just captured the Russian colour,another reason for the blood stain to implicate a hard fought battle in the capture of the flag.
    The hands I am leaving right till the end together with the colour staff.
    As its progressing now im finding its coming together nicely as I had originaly thought out.

    Most impressive. I really like the addition of the dirt and blood stains; the service stripe is not a bad idea either.

    The gore really reflects the circumstances of the pose rather than a 'parade ground' appearance. Brilliant in all respects Brian!
