Retreat from Moscow Old Glory 40mm 1812

This is my rendition of Napoleons retreat from Moscow in 1812.  These are all Old Glory 40mm figures apart from the crows who are from Reaper miniatures. The trees,  rocks etc are hand painted resin.
I entered this in the Salute painting competition but it did not place, it had to go into the miscelaneous category so was up against a lot of good Fantasy stuff.
Again I have taken photos with my Phone, it does the job, might have to invest in a proper camera sometime though.
As you can see it is a rather large piece, about 50cm by 23cm. and typically I have nowhere big enough to display it.  So it will be up for sale soon, anyone interested please ask away.

This was my first attempt at a snow scene so happy how it turned out.

Any comments are welcome and thanks for looking.

Artizan 28mm Lawrence of Arabia with Iregular Camel Cavalry

Hello again to readers of my blog.  I decided to take a break from painting to take pictures and update my blog.  Here we have Artizan miniatures Lawrence of Arabia and his Arab Irregular cavalry in 28mm.
These were painted a couple of years back but never got around to taking pictures of them.
Again my painting style has changed , hopefully for the better, since doing these, I hope you like them?  The figure wearing white is supposed to Lawrence.
I am still taking pictures with my phone and still reasonably happy with them.

It will be Salute 2012 soon and a trip to London will be made, my son and I are both looking forward to get away and to meet like minded people there.
Any comments welcome and thanks for looking.
