Grenadiers a Cheval du Roi

Dear Graillou,

That's a fine, fine wargaming piece. Such marvellous painting of the lines and shading. Simply gorgeous.

Regards, James

Re: Grenadiers a Cheval du Roi

Agreed some wonderful brushwork , not sure about the faces, but everything else stunning.

Re: Grenadiers a Cheval du Roi

Wonderful figures, I just hope mine come a quarter of the way to looking as good

Re: Grenadiers a Cheval du Roi

A fine paint job on these fine figures, well done!

I assume that the bare flag pole is left without the flag for a purpose (wargames unit/marker?). The flag carried by the Grenadiers a Cheval changed little during the C18th, and is shown on the excellent Kronoskaf site at:

http://www.kronoskaf.com/syw/index.php?title=Grenadiers_%C3%A0_cheval

The same site shows a drummer of the Grenadiers in a predominantly blue coat with lace, circa 1724. Musicians' uniforms of this early C18th period are notoriously difficult to research, and so a little artistic licence is perfectly acceptable in my book. The drummer in this group looks particularly well done.

Great painting, very good basing and the photography spot on. It allowed us to see how good the figures are, thank you.
