    Hi guys
    I did this vignette inspired from the paint of Alphonse De Neuville of Ltn Melvill saving, as ordered, the Queen’s colours at Isandhlwana battle. I create the officer and the Zulu over some spare parts, I sculpt all the uniform details: the indian frock, arms, hands, belts, binocular case ,all hand made, as well as, the sword, the Adams revolver and the flag of the 24th Warwickshire, painted over aluminium foil.
    I create the Zulu warrior wearing the war dress with the shield, lance, leopard skin, monkey tails y cow tail fringe over the legs
    The Historex horse was transformed in some parts: and over him I sculpt the campaign equipment: the bridle, saddle, the blanket, the crine and tail
    I used acrylic Vallejo for the officer and Zulu and the horse was painted with oils
    I must thanks for information and help to:
    Martin Everett Curator, Museum of the Royal Regiment of Wales (24th / 41st Foot)
    John Young Research Society Chairman, Anglo-Zulu War.

    Excellent piece Adriano!!! I love the composition, the placement of the Zulu sheild is brilliant, really leads the viewer right into the action. Very well done!

    Your work is very fantastic.
    The sculpting and painting technique is wonderful.
    I think the idea of the scene is also very nice.
    I congratulate completion.

    It is a good work, I specially like the composition and the action scene, but maybe some more contrast on the paint work will be a nice touch, the colors looks a bit flat for me.

    Adriano,
    You captured a real life scene in this miniature. It also tells a story. Great work.
