But I just need to point out that the hat of your grenadier isnt proper...
With that kind of 3-corner hat he would bump it off his head all the time when throwing the grenades...
(they used too anyhoo, but the hat stayed)
The proper hat would be the guards hat, but that would be moot as grenadiers would be the elite and thus guard -grenadiers. More often than not
Have ye now? Aww, thanks indeed! I've had a blast but I've missed you a great deal too!! been pondering what ye been up to ^.^! Well I are back now, to the terror of ye all!!!!! Bwaha...erm.. what's all been going on o.O now?
They only allow you so much space in your gallery? What's up with that? I check out your scaps an they rank right up there. But my only question would be in those tath ones what's with the big black cloud?
Wow. I'm impressed at the sheer the detail to these uniforms. This piece must have been a bit of a pain to research and sketch no doubt.
These are (if this is a silly question feel free to laugh) uniforms based on those of the 1st Empire of France and early 1800's- esqe Britain, no?
Indeed they are! But the references are mostly British, and late c19th, but set for late c18th! I have to say though, i did NO research for this unless you count a lifetime of doodling and reading LOL, i certainly had no reference to hand.
This is fairly average detail though, you should see what i do when i really try! LOL
