Hi all.

I made this vignette for Wargames Soldiers & Strategy magazine.
A full SBS article of it's making will appear in November's issue (#63):
Selecting the figures,setting the scene, small conversions, painting etc…

Hope you like it.

I agree with jpattern, the faces are fantastic. The work you did on the horse is also quite impressive. Hell, EVERYTHING is quite impressive!

Now you've done it…painted fingernails! I see great painters paint realistic eyes, but this is too much, really. I hang up my painter smock and throw my paints and brushes in the bin. (I'll fetch them out before the bin men cometh.)
