Good to see the horse taking advantage of the break in the journey to grab a spot of rest.

Lovely vignette, as always.

He valiantly fought them off!

The dead guy is based on one of your units. Can you name it as I couldn't find it on the blog?

This would have been finished a day earlier but EB kindly pointed out a mould line on the completed ADC so in to the Dettol he went!

Now that I think about it, the mould line added a certain something.

All in all though, alright, s'pose.

Is he from the Emily Davidson Memorial Regiment? I gather they have a novel means of dealing with charging enemy horse.

Those are excellent, very appealing painting style, quite different from so many you see.
