    Looking superb Richie. Such an impressive amount of work has gone into creating that scene. It's going to be incredible when you've painted it all up.

    I saw this at Sword & Lance, Darlington yesterday. The most impressive 120mm diorama I've seen.
    Top stuff Richie and I look forward to seeing it painted.

    How could I miss this one...?! Very very nice Richie. It really captures the heat of battle. So many figures per square cm but they fit together perfectly! Great work.

    Hi Ray/Colin,
    I have made a start painting some of the figures and blocking in on others. I decided to try and clear some of the other projects around and I have been slowly working on these. I also started a bust from Campaign Miniatures of a Natal Pioneer as I have never painted a dark skin tone before and I have used this as a very valuable painting aid before I started the Zulu's.

    Plus other things have gotten in the way, work, family etc

    Once I get back at it, the painting should move at a fair rate as did the build did, so just bear with me lads. I plan to have a good square away and make a fresh start this weekend.
    cheers
    Richie
