    Well folks,

    This is finally done. Its painted in oils and acrylics. It is a very fun paint and well outside of my normal Napoleonic's.

    I would think this is more like an armor kit than not. It does take quite a bit modeling skill to get it to fit correctly. Is is extremely well engineered. I'm happy that I painted this prior to the Palestine kit which is also on the bench for later this year.

    It is picture heavy, there is a lot to see.

    All comments welcome. If you see anything amiss please let me know.

    Hi Mike

    The figure looks fantastic, great work.

    You'll be delighted to know that the third mounted figure in this series will be available in September, a Trooper of the Australian Light Horse at Beersheba in 1917. With a further figure planned for 2019.

    Great to see the figures painted to such a high standard.

    Superb painting and display (sword guard should face aft not forward!).

    The Light Horse carried bayonets, not sabres at Beersheba, although there is some evidence that swords may have been carried towards the end of the war.

    A new record! Critique of a figure not even shown! ;)

    The figure of the ALH Trooper is indeed sculpted charging with a bayonet.

    Darren,

    Thank you for the kind words! I love your kits. They are marvelous! I have a couple
    More on the bench to be paInted between now the end of the year. Including your artillery piece and figures. You fill An amazing niche in the market place and really enjoy the subject matter.

    Any plans for an American Marine or 2nd or 3rd Infantry division?
