    Can't do better than Lannes for a dynamic subject. Enjoy the gold lace on this one Ivo!

    Looking forward to this new project.
    How do you like the Eisenbach horses? Was it a complete kit or did you use quarters to build this horse in the pose you wanted? I've thought of making an order from them but wasn't sure what they are like.

    Hi Colin

    Eisembach horses work very well, they have a wide range of positions and I find them very useful. I did many horses using that pieces.
    Quality are absolutely acceptable, not a Metal Modeles level, but good; Size are compatible with Metal Modeles or historex pieces.
    only a simple suggestion... don't buy the heavy range... I don't like them

    I uploaded some pictures on my album http://www.planetfigure.com/useralbums/napoleonic-figures.478/view where I used the Eisembach horses

    Thanx for the link and the opinions on these products. If those are the results with Eisenbach horses, I'm sold! I like the animation of the poses... MM horses look good but I find them very static. I like to see horses in movement... running, jumping, rearing etc.

    Anyway, as usual, I look forward to following the progress of your work.

    Thanx again

    Very interesting figure and a great start. I'm sure it's just tacked on for the moment but the scabbard is reversed on your photo.

    hi John,

    the scabbard is reversed because at the beginning has to be oriental style... it will change

    I used the grout to trim the tails and the body, I have completed the bust and started to close the neck. the plate will then lead to the BALDRICS,
