Standardbearer Finished

Last night I did the last brushstrokes on the figure.
The flag was the last part I had to paint. I spend some time to get this blue color look good.
The groundwork is a bit poor but I´m planning to make a little vignette with this figure next year.
This was a great figure to paint, up to my next project.

update standardbearer

I have finished the braid work and also the head and fixed it on the torso.
I'm not totally satisfied with the highlight of the lighter blue. Maybe I'm going to change it. The next steps are finishing the white trousers and arms. And fix the arms to the figure.

Standardbearer - Royal Guard Grenadeers

I have made some more progress on the figure. I painted the blue color a bit darker and also changed the color of the highlights. In the front still some extra highlights have to be added. I also added more shadows on the trousers and started painting the braid work. At the back most of it is done now. Still need to correct some parts and add some additional shadows. And I painted the highlights and shadows of the reds. But here is also a bit more work to do.
