Latest efforts

I've been away for a bit, working at the day job which lately has run into working into the night as well.  But I push on.  Remember those Danes I showed you a while back?  They weren't totally done because I didn't have the flags yet so I couldn't mount them on their bases.  Well, I've got the flags now and boy are they good.  These flags are done by The Flag Dude and he did a really nice job.  And not to talk too long, here they are -

Next, I've been working on a unit I've been wanting to paint for a while now - Garde Francaises.  I've painted just one battalion but I eventually plan on having 4 on the table plus at least 2 of the Garde Suisse. The flags with this unit are from Maverick Models in the UK and I have to say that I do like these flags a lot. You will notice that there is NOT a white colonel's color with the Garde.  This is because they did not carry that in the field unless the King or the Dauphin was present.  Without any further delay, here they are

That's all for now.  Comments and suggestions welcome.  Thank you for stopping by.
