    Finally it is finished. It took me a while but I'm satisfied untill I saw the pictures. There are some spots to be done (bloody camera) but that is just peanuts.
    With thanks to Ivo Preda and J.W. Stokers for the colors and pictures, and all advises. Thanks to Ron Tamburini for the perfect base. As always painted with oils. Straps, and reins are made from electric isolation tape (tip from Bill Horan)
    So guys, load your guns, aime, and fire;
    Here are the bad pictures.

    Don't forget if you use isolation tape to get off the glue.....with white spirit.

    Made some new pictures. Spend the whole saturday with the camera and the lights. This is the best that i could get. Only a minimum on the curves corrected in Photoshop.

    You have achieved a very nice result there marc,this looks to have been a difficult piece to paint and very time consuming,however you have done a great job on all the elements,the lancers red uniform is very nice done as also is the sadle cloth,the horse colouring is very nice as well,i'm glad you decided on some groundwork as it really sets the piece off really well,i too have had bases from ron and they are first class,congratulations on a great job well done,look forward to seeing your next piece (y)
