    Hi guys
    My second lancer I¨like to show you is a 21st sergeant, dismounted and defending himself on foot at the famous charge of Omdurman.
    I create the soldier over some spare parts, as a start, then I sculpt all the uniform details adding the arms, hands belts, haversack and the 50 round bandolier: all hand made, has well as the helmet with curtain, the water bottle, the sword, the revolver and the bamboo lance.
    The Historex horse was transformed in many parts: body legs and neck to look killed, and over him I created the regular equipment in use on that campaign: the bridle, saddle, 2 wallets, forage bag, the messtin and the especial fringe flies-protector for the head ) I did the crine and tail on spot.
    I used acrylic Vallejo for the soldier and the horse was painted with oils
    All yours comments are welcome
