Davids Old Guard 2

I thought I would post some pics of the Davids progress on their old guard. I believe all the infantry were painted by young David (his dad has been concentrating on the line).
 
 2 battalions of AB guard chasseurs and 1 battalion of old glory grenadiers of the guard. 
I'm sure they will be a formidable enemy!
   
 Plus the guard command base that I started so long ago and young David continued with is now finally finished and the young guard fanion is also attached (if not waving in the wide).
   
So as things stand I have a battalion of old glory Dutch guard to paint and the Davids have 3 battalions of old glory middle guard and 1 more old glory old guard battalion to paint.
I think they are turning out pretty well.

Young David is a credit to his Father and his Uncle. My guess is you and your brother have set a pretty high standard for him to aspire to, but it looks as if he's meeting the challendge.

Hi Christopher and Joseph, Thanks for the comments.

Yes we are slowly working our way through our Napoleonic armies.

Seeing the old glory old Guard painted is particularly satisfying for me as I picked them up a few years ago at a show when we started back into Naps.

Cheers

Hi john,
You beat me to the post there. Yes he is a fine painter.

You know how it goes, you have to balance the amount of detail you put in with actually getting figures completed and ready for the table.

He is doing our armies proud ;0)
Cheers
Paul

Its wonderful that your family can create a legacy together like that amazing historic army. Trying to teach my cat to manipulate green stuff, and its not working out so well. Keep us up on the progress.

Held this brigade off with a battered Prussian brigade while JP and Dave sent their troops in a maelstrom of fire from Young Dave and his dad commanding the french, some great looking figures on the table.

Scotsgrey said...

fought against these and some other great looking french figures today! they might be looking for legere re inforcments from Young David particularly if there are more Prussian landwehr
