I've painted the «4e Gardes d'honneur» (honour guards).

Please have a look on the following link:


Hope you'll enjoy :-)

I certainly did enjoy them. Other than Perry website, you have a "first" here for painted figures. On my list of things to do…heck, I asked for them for long enough!

Really inspiring. I prefer these pics to the Perry promotional ones….because now we are seeing a unit, not a series of trios.

They look great at rest and not in a wild charge pose.

Great photography too. Superb close ups. (Try a higher f number and longer exposure to get more depth of focus on the side angle photos?)

The trumpeter's horse looks great.

Meant to ask the question everyone poses….and funnily how often it is that particular colour.

The green used. In 28mm it looks absolutely right, needs to be this dark. So…

What did you use?

Thank you all for your comments.

I used vallejo black green 70.980.

I hope the Perry bros will release other «rare» guard units, like the «Gendarmes d'ordonnance» for example…

I think they are the very last Guard unit that no one does…..

Might just be a veteran foot unit or some such missing?

I still hope Perrys will also release the promised metal heads to convert plastic hussars to Gardes d'Honneur

Nice. Love the colour choices. They have great depth of colour.
