A wargaming blog documenting the development of my Napoleonic Wargames armies in 28mm scale.
Very nice paint job James. However, are you sure the shako cords should be green as well as the plumes? I can't find that in any of my sources, pretty sure they should be white. Haythorthwaite's "Uniforms of Waterloo" shows a 27th Foot Light Coy Sgt with white cords and a 2nd Foot Guards Light coy sgt with gold cords. Pericoli's "Armies at Waterloo" has a 3rd Guards Lt Coy officer with gold cords and a Lt Coy guardsman with white. Sorry
Chris, don't be sorry.I used this as my reference, which shows Green Cords and Green Plumes. C'est la vie as they say!http://centjours.mont-saint-jean.com/uniformes_uniteBR.php?uniformes=37&nation=1Hope you are wellJ
OK fair enough , i stand corrected. Maybe it's the flash in the photo but the ensemble comes across a bit garish. ,However, our project is very lucky to have your energy and enthusiasm applied to it, thank youCGhttp://notjustoldschool.blogspot.co.uk/
