Good job on the painting. Really like the blue.

Love the explosion too. Much lighter smoke effect than I used. Mine was more like modern film pyrotechnics and many pointed out that powder of the era was productive of a much lighter grey smoke. Suggestion though, sprinkle a few bits of light gravel over it. Much earth would be thrown up. The two victims are really well chosen too

Very cinematic effect, well done.. This is the kind ofthing that keeps gamers picking up figures, buildings and other stuff on the table, asking 'How did you do THIS?', and its about another half-hour before we even get to rolling the first dice..

They are beautiful – absolutely brilliant painting.

But can I ask a question about the cuffs? Not because I'm a "but you got the blah blah blah wrong" but because I've been struggling with painting French line cuffs for the last two weeks!
The sources I have show a central flap which is piped white in the inner side and red on the outer side (and red across the end furthest from the wrist). But these figs have a central flap which is piped white all the way around. Was this another variation? If so, it will make painting my next batch much easier!
