    Hi guys
    I did this figure of Sergeant Ewart with the captured eagle of 45e Régiment de Ligne (45th Regiment of the Line). at Waterloo. I used a Historex Scot Greys soldier and horse, transformed in some parts: legs neck, the crine, tail the bridle and the 45 th standard was had made ..I used acrylic Vallejo for the soldier, the horse was painted with oils and acrylic
    ‘’As the Scots Greys waded through the French column, Sergeant Charles Ewart found himself within sight of the eagle of 45e Régiment de Ligne (45th Regiment of the Line). With a chance to capture the eagle, Ewart fought his way towards it, later recounting:

    One made a thrust at my groin – I parried it off and ... cut him through the head. one of their Lancers threw his lance at me but missed ... by my throwing it off with my sword ... I cut him through the chin and upwards through the teeth. Next, I was attacked by a foot soldier, who, after firing at me charged me with his bayonet, but ... I parried it and cut him down through the head.[

    With the eagle captured, Sergeant Ewart was ordered to take the trophy off, denying the French troops a chance to recapture their battle standard. In recognition of his feat, he was promoted from sergeant to ensign’’.

    I will certainly take a look. I’m always happy to see the Historex and Airfix conversions.

    It’s also nice to see others who are still working with them and love them as I do. :)
