Very fancy work on this particular uniform with all that gold lace! I might just have to borrow this uniform for one of my "fictitious" units.

Best Regards,

Stokes

A splendid and spectacular uniform indeed!
I guess that -despite all that lace to paint- this template will soon provide the uniform of several Horse Guard units, specially for those Imagi-Nations currently in the building.

Compliments and thanks,
Jean-Louis

Hi Jean-Louis,

It is a fine uniform, isn't it? Hope you're right and we see it cropping up on blogs soon...

Thanks.

All the best,

David.

Superb work David. I always like your templates, and the added colour just brings them to life.

Thanks, Steve. It's rather time consuming doing the coloured versions but as you say, it really does bring them to life! I rather dread trying to catch up with all the previous templates though. It will be a slow business, I think...

All the best,

David.
