  5. Fantastic Pat; you are certainly setting the standard for the rest of us to aspire to. I have many of the miniatures on show at the bottom of the lead pile and really must dig them up. Love the basing on the Lord Chelmsford, which I may have to unashamedly steal!

  12. Really very splendid, Pat. Superb painting and you've finished their bases off wonderfully. I adore the roan coat on Colonel H.E. Wood's horse - really subtle and elegantly done.
