preview of what's next

as the carabiniers company was actually finished one week before it was pictured, I've since started working on the command stand. Apparently, the Perry Miniatures don't reflect the 1815 uniform! First of all, there should be no pike bearer. Then, the eagle bearer should not have two epaulettes. My conclusion is that this is more of a 1812-14 command stand!

Nevermind, I have the minis, they look good, so... why not...! I found in the Osprey books (Napoleon's light infantry, Napoleon's line infantry) some clues about how to paint them. That's where I found the silver stripes on the shako. I've painted one pike bearer and was rather satisfied with it. The "chef de bataillon" is also done - lots of blue colour, that didn't take long! The last two are WIP.

Next weekend, I'm off to Salute (London), I'm very much looking forward to it!!
