Finally putting up some French for the 1812 Patriotic War campaign.

Here's the head of column:

I'd be interested in your thoughts.

Great painting. I have not seen OG figures looking so good. Regarding the Eagle escorts pennants, some were blank so you are not too far off. In most other cases they had a gold 'Napoleon' or the regiment embroidered on them.

GMB flags are the best in my opinion, but you have to note, as you have here, that they are slightly bigger in scale than the actual items. This looks good for wargames but can cause problems with accurately scaled flag poles.

I thought your hand painted flag looked very promising. Remember, it would have been curled and wrinkled in the wind, so any irregularities will soon disappear.

I simply love GMB flags and my Coldstreams have the King's and Regt colour as of yesterday…..but they are always too big and that is freely admitted. It is gamer driven

I added a fanion bearer today to this entry. What do you think?

That grey coat. I am saving a couple of the rear view images to instruct myself!

Very nice. I particually like the way the White horse has turned out…I´ll give that try.
