David's Guard Artillery

I had my brother and nephews French collection at my house for a wee while so I decided to take a few pics of it for my blog.
  
These guys are pretty new to their collection. I won a few packs of OG French and British off eBay at a good price and the old guard foot artillery were the main reason for my bid.
 
I think the figures are really nice and David Jnr did a nice job on the uniforms.

 I posted these guys in their WIP state a few months back and this is them finally finished off.
 
 This time very nice painting by David Snr.
  
 And very nice figures by OG.
 
Their guard ranks are growing all the time. Middle guard on the workbench at the moment I believe!

Thanks a million for all the kind comments guys, the Davids did a great job on them.

Crazy Joe I work shifts so when I get in after a backshift it takes ages to settle the nerves.

Phil the rules we are using are General de Brigade, really enjoy them too.

John, spot on I will be up against these figures so there is a down side ;0)

I'm quite impressed with the old glory castings and your brothers painting ability! The guard cavalry batteries really look the part.
