    Well done, Francis

    This sculpted piece with all the little details as part of the base along with
    the soldiers equipment, et cetera, really give this presentation a lot of eye
    appeal. A most interesting piece, of a setting that isn't done that often.

    Beautifully photographed as well. I really noticed how the texture and tone
    of the background or backdrop compliment the color and texture harmony
    of the entire presentation. I'm sure the background wasn't selected by
    accident, or willy nilly.

    Congrats. :)

    Your Royal North British Fusiliers

    Francis, I too like the Crimea. Would love to see this one in production as well. While I can appreciate the recent releases from WWII< WWI and the Ancients, I would much prefer something from the Crimean Era. Your bust of the Rifle Brigade was awesome and this little gem another one that grabs my attention. Hope to see some manufacturer take your talent and put it into a kit...

    All the Best, Terry Martin-Member of the Atlanta Miniature Figure Society
