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