|Guard Artillery by L&F Funcken|
Today, as I took these photos of the finished work on the current 2 battalions of guardsmen, a horse battery and 6 batteries of foot guard artillery, I realized that I am very nearly complete on the French, Russian, Austrian, Prussian and British forces that I had set out to create some 10 years ago.
When the next 4 artillery pieces are finished painting, I believe that the time will have come to have a Guard review. Weather permitting maybe even out in the garden?

|I believe these are Hinchliffe model of guardsmen, with a minifig officer in the center|
|Horse artillery by minifig, gun model by Prince August and officers (mounted) by Foundry|
|more of the gun - this officer will draw attention for certain|
