    Well it's been a couple of years since i've posted on here or even done any modelling (being in and out of hospital for a most of it). I now have a few projects which i have started so i will post individually. First up this 75mm diorama from RDG Miniatures, to be honest i'm surprised to see so many finished versions already(must of been a popular kit). Up until this week all of modelling has been assembly and doing the base work but, this week I had a 5 day holiday up at the batch and did nothing but painting so this is where i'm at. Horses apart from the grey(acrylic) are done in oils. Feedback most welcome as the more research I did, the more confusing it got with a lot of conflicting information.

    Regards Zane

    Very nice Zane. I like the addition of a grey horse which were used by the 17th.

    Cheers Kevin, Carl seems to have a Knack for great Animation like The stampede and The mounted viking(which I completed a few years ago) not to mention his 120mm stuff. Ok, I have a question for you re the accuracy of this pic/painting that I based the horses bit on whicht is joined down the bottom but, i'm not sure now.

    Thanks Bob, yes it is huge/ time consuming but if you finish each day of painting at a stage where you can't wait to get back into it then hopefully the enthusiasm will always be there.

    Thanks Gordon, I could only find 2 pics of the white horse and wasn't to sure but assumed there was no reason there couldn't be.

    Zane, Great to see you painting again. Like the way the scene is coming together.(y) Love the color and variety in the horses! The grey horse is my favorite! Hope your health is better as well!

    Thanks Terry, I've tried to give the horses their own identity because when they are combined with the riders they may look a bit muddy together. yes health is better, nothing like a new kidney.
