18 mm Sho Boki

I painted these in a mix of 1791 and 1792 regulation, they lost of course their title and were then known as 94 de ligne.

The colour as for the 2nd battalion I had to paint by hand using a Colonel Colour (all white) by Adolfo Ramos because those are more realistic than the popular immense paper flags of like GMB.

As for paints, again experimenting a bit with Contrast Paint and conventional one (the whites and flesh colours).

I added the AB – 9e dragons – this time with standard which I comissioned from David Not by Appointment – again to ensure correct dimensions, and David did a superb job as well as for the Perrys 28 mm Conversion I did years ago, here with the standard of the 2nd squadron

I think I would go blind painting those cavalry standard staffs.

The standard bearer in the bicorne hat and that impossible for most of us spiral staff.

Now you are good, OK you are incredible, but he is a Perry plastic in 28mm, but with much work from you, not an 18mm.

I saved this image to help mw with 1/72 cuirassiers for the Waterloo Project. Not my chosen scale but……………

I know people will talk about your riders (of course) but for me it is the horse and the harness, that use of highlighting on black leather for example.

Thanks once more

Superb formulae as usual and I agree on the flags/ standards.

For 40 years I've used 'accurate' as possible sizes, I create my French 1804 flags 25mm long with a 2mm allowance for the wrap around; that scales to 80cm square good enough for me- yours are superb!

In 15mm I create the illusion of the spiral staff with bands of the appropriate colors, if that's helpful to anyone.

the spirals are not that difficult, just try it out, three colours are not that problematic but 4 like for the Austrians can create a bit more trouble.
