    Thanks Billy. There's been a lot of stops and starts with these but I think there's a strong possibility of them being finished this leave. :)

    I do like a nice flat Roger and these are shaping up beautifully
    And aren't those leggings with false boot bottoms that were the rage at the time cool? :playful:

    Thank you Paul and yes I'd agree with you about the leggings, very distinctive. Interesting to paint on a flat too.

    Thanks Nap. I'm still not entirely happy with the horses, still quite a bit of highlighting to do yet. Flags give me the eebie jeebies, especially in 30mm.

    Hi Huw,Roger

    They are for Pleasure not for Ellies Mins. Been working on them for a while I had them commissioned, Adam Mac Masters did the work for me. I'm doing the painting /Ground work. it was based on a drawing I did a while ago so will post when It's finished along with another Mounted piece I'm working on. hope to have them done for the Xmas bash at the white rose.

    Cheers Guys
