    Thank you. Pat Mills has been a life long inspiration and pacifist, a point very much overlooked in the Charley's War comic reviews. For all its brutality Pat always introduced a political and humanist narrative to the writing that can only be fully understood by adults, absorbed by children through comic form as just the way it was. So much excellent writing and imagery in CW, I hope my models capture their essence in some small way.

    I've always loved horses. I was lucky to ride them as a kid with friends who owned a stable, even had a go at bare back riding, that was scary as the horse was massive. These days any horse would run a mile if I tried to get on it. :D

    Hope your head is better now, Im sure Big Dog stew is a thing lol :D

    Thank you mate.

    What was an hour visit to the shed turned into an eight hour straight messing around building the base. Still have items to paint and add. Like you mentioned, it was fun cutting all the grass and adding sparingly.

    After taking the photos added a little diluted oils to vary the darkness of the soil in certain places. :)

    Just completed the 1/35 Charley’s War (Battle comics) British Cavalry graveyard scene. A depiction of hell on earth during the Great War 1914-18. Thank you to Pat Mills and the late Joe Colquhoun for your ongoing inspiration.

    Not familiar with the battle comics, but a great emulation of the drawing!
    Love the lichen effect on the stonework by the way!
