    Having just finished the 2 allied Waterloo busts,I am now undertaking a first in my Modeling career,for this next project I plan to complete the CGS 200mm full figure of the imperial guard eagle bearer.
    I had to put this on hold while I completed the other 2 busts.
    The piece itself is a chunk of resin,beautifully cast by graham and sculpted by Carl,these pictures I have added only show the early stages of assembly and test fitting,I still have to fill some areas which I will do on my next sitting.
    I painted the half version of this for my busterama last year and it's such an emotional piece and one I'm looking forward to,having the full version in my cabinet.
    I can't reiterate how beautiful this piece is,it's like holding a piece of history in your hands,I can't recommend this piece highly enough,in all the napoleonic pieces I've painted over the last 25 years,it's by far my favourite piece.

    I have to paint the bust. It's in my grey army and it's indeed a cracker.
    With the legs under it, this will be a giant.
    I'm convinced that you will do a cracking job on this.
