Lovely attention to detail and very strong colours which capture the spirit of the game well. Good photos too...looks like that camera was a good investment. I'd love to see you do the British retaliation on the hill fort of Akhbar Khan. I suppose you'd need a fairly vertiginous gaming table..Anyone out there made one?

Amazingly good timing for me as I have a heap of Bengal lancers and Indian infantry crying to me to paint them from my shelf. You have inspired me. I loved the colour scheme for your lancers..is this real or a little Hollywood? Excuse my ignorance. It seems from a quick web search that there were a plethora of uniforms for the Indian troops during the Second Afgan War. Have you come across any really good web based sources that could help me?

Thanks for sharing captain!

Skinners Horse, 1909, as taken (more or less) from the Blandford colour series book on British Cavalry Uniforms. Think this is really parade dress rather than campaign dress, but what the heck. Looks good on the tabletop!  ;)

Magnificent! I am also quite taken by the Skinner's Horse uniform. I am sporadically working on some Guides cavalry at the moment, but I think lancers must be next!

Lovely work, and since no one else seems to have mentioned it yet, really like that backdrop and the way it blends in with the table.
