    Hello,

    I show you my next project. It is the vignette "The Clash", produced by Gordon Mitchell and sculpted by Carl Reid.
    The vignette depicts the battle between the famous British Scots Greys and the 4th regiment of French Line Lancers, during the battle of Waterloo.

    To get a good look for the both mounted figures I give them more space on the groundbase.

    I hope you like it.

    Ben

    Nice One Ben,
    I like the work on the horses. and the reds on the S Gray are very good.
    Not sure about giving them more room, but at the end of the day if you are happy with it that's all that matters.
    great

    Hi Ben,
    I would do the same as you, give room between this two wonderful figures. I think one could not see all the details when they are placed too close.
    You did a great job on this one. Congrats!!

    Hi Mick, thanks for comments. About more space, Both horses were sculpted closed together. But I have built it on the base with more space. So you can see more of both figures.

    Lovely piece of work ben,I like the dapple groom on the grey horse,I think the gap is just right,any further apart and I think it would look odd,but you have got the distance between them just about right

    Excellent paintwork Ben.
    I don't know if I like it more with the greater space between the figures.
    Gonna wait till I see it in life, and don't know when that is gonna be.

    Great painting and scene. Love the horse colours. I think spacing is a personal thing for the individual. All around well done.
