WIP MMM’s Elite Gendarme of the Imperial Guard.

    As I’m coming to the end of work on Gordon’s Hussar in campaign dress I thought I’d keep it in the family and have made a start on Mitches 120mm French Imperial Guard Gendarme, sculpted by Moz. It’s early days yet. I’ve done the face, and main parts of the tunic in oils so far, the rest is in undercoat base colours. I need to finish off the eyes and start on the detail work. It’s a super pose/scene and the Gendarme uniform is one of my favourite Napoleonic uniforms. Maybe we’ll get some more offerings from Gordon/Ross to cover Artillery, Train, Gendarmes d’Ordannance, Guard Marines-here’s hoping.

    Thanks Mike. I’ve got the Dragoon carrying the saddle as well from Mitches, which I’m running alongside this. Hoping for a few more from Ross and Gordon.

    Thanks clrsgt. It’s a super kit and I like the addition of the pipe to just add a little bit of interest.

    Just been reading up on this unit at Waterloo which consisted of only about 100.

    Thanks Gordon. Interesting to hear they were at Waterloo. Was that in a combat role so to speak or covering rear areas?

    That's fast.
    Great job so far.

    Thanks Marc. Fortunately there’s not many pieces to add once the body is made up so it’s moving along probably a little quicker as a result.

    Moved on a little bit with this recently. The breeches and waistcoat are done in oils and I’ve made a start on the groundwork and the shabraque. Need to pick out some of the details on the bearskin raquettes and aiguilette. I will also probably revisit the bearskin as it’s drying with a bit of a sheen. I mixed some raw Umber in with the black and don’t know if it’s not been thinned enough hence the sheen. 67A794BE-9BEE-4125-A0CE-E57BAC966135.jpeg 6DD70A16-D809-4986-91F5-C86A9063BE1F.jpeg 5EBE717A-35E7-4D81-8642-85300AE37490.jpeg CD4408DE-390A-4718-90B6-48D851C4CF34.jpeg E5957CAA-658D-414C-A27F-BAF46A4D988E.jpeg

    Going to call this finished now save for the addition of a name plate. 394C186A-173C-45D0-B80E-61C5D0B9E3BA.jpeg 5B1C8362-D1D3-4DA6-88BA-6DDD0AA08C16.jpeg F4F7F73C-41D8-4C3A-89D0-A456B55719E9.jpeg A23078DB-FCC8-4E45-9EF5-C2F6FCE8D70D.jpeg
