As the weather was again better than forecast as soon as I got home from work I grabbed some piccies just before the sun got too low Whew!

Sir Edward Stradling’s Regiment of Foot





Duke of York's Regiment of Foot





Sir Marmaduke Rawdon’s Regiment of Foot





These are the last of the troops I need for Cheriton but not quite the end of this project

Some of you may know that none of these regiments were at the battle of Cheriton, the shot and officers from these units will be used as the Commanded Shot from Lieutenant Colonel Edward Hopton, Sir Allen Apsley and Colonel Matthew Appleyard's regiments

Paul, as always, looking great!!!

I did notice one of the flags developed a wrinkled crease when trying to add the motion - a problem I have encountered more than once. I finally figured a solution and offer just a a  suggestion. Now I take my paper flags and use various sizes of round things (like a pencil, modeling file, straw, etc. ad will roll the flag around it. Then for more folded places I will carefully add additional folding by hand. Seems to work pretty well, and I think is worth the trouble.

I agree Terry, I use the same technique

Unfortunately the crease developed while trying to 'carefully' add a little more movement late in the process and the glue had dried too much for me to sort it At wits' end

Watch a flag in a lively wind; sharp creases do happen, so let not thy heart be troubled.

Ah, OK Paul. I suspect you may have just told me why I was having the problem on doing flapping in the breeze flags.

Another thing that makes it a bit easier for me is that I always replace any cast standard poles with wire, so I can do the flag and work it without it being attached to the figure - thus my Muscovite flags not yet attached. Not sure 10 MM allows that though.
