    And these troopers are put on the field of battle.
    I have made a St Louis Cross for the officer, he'll be a flagbearer, still waiting for my order from GMB flags... 20210405_073320.jpg 20210405_073241.jpg 20210405_064225.jpg

    Hi Daniel

    A fine line of men you have there , nice start on them

    The officer looks particularly good , nice character and a young looking face IMO

    You must be patient painting so many of the same in a production line ....but what a resuit you get always impressive

    Interesting ref flags .....do you overpaint any of the details or use as we see them here ...either way they do look effective

    Did you wargame before doing these superb diorama's ?

    Look forward as always to more

    Happy Bench time

    Hi Kev , thanks for your comments.
    I do paint over details on the flags, always do, even if they look as good as these on the picture.
    As for wargaming, i have never done it, not really my cup of tea, li like the historical display of the dioramas, the biggest issue with them is that i have no place for them.
    I may try to offer the Yorktown diorama to the Yorktown Battlefield visitor center, don't know.

    Hi Daniel

    Great additions in place really like the variety in uniforms your depicting , the poses ofvtgevfigures work well and all interact which is great to see

    As for the visitors centre what an offer that would be , my thought is they woukd be crazy not to want it .....a so museum level piece and everywhere and everytime you look visitors will see something so special and detailed ....

    Just wish I lived closer !

    Thanks for updates as always a pleasure to see

    Happy benchtine
