|Wonderful GMB flags being readied for the Russian Guard|
Just a quick post to show that things are still progressing steadily on the 1805-07 project. The figures are now based and varnished in their entirety and are now simply awaiting a presentation of the Colonels and Regimental colours from Tsar Alexander himself.
In his absence it would seem that the duty will need to fall on this old grumbler!

Secondly, I had ordered the book you can see above earlier in the year from trusty Dave Ryan at Caliver Books and to say I was very, very impressed is an understatement. The detail that Dr Prince and Mr Spring go into is amazing and now, with the confidence of knowing flag pole, drum stick and staff colours, proper designations etc. Russian flags of the Napoleonic era should be a lot easier to decipher from now on.
