Lancers in Green & Lest we forget

I fixed the green pennants on these chaps. Hopefully they will be doing their best for the Pasha before too long.

In the meantime, I found this in a box while looking for something else.  It is great war monument from Sergeants Mess. A crisp little casting this lovely sharply defined detail.  

I have no pressing need for it at present, but it was such a nice little model that I couldn't help putting it together. 

I had originally thought of using a standard grey plinth and dark bronze statue with some verdigris, but I think I might use this monument as a model. It's a bit brighter than I expected - which is no bad thing.

  1. Hi Conrad,
    Now that you are a published author:
    "My favourite article in this issue was Conrad Kinch's Send three and fourpence because it is entirely devoted to a Sword and the Flame scenario and battle report. It is a follow-up to the Chamla Valley scenario that is featured in the 20th Anniversary Edition of Sword and the Flame, and is entitled 'King of the Chamla Constabulary'. From my point of view, this article alone justifies the cost of buying this issue of the magazine."...
    I hope you will remain the same simple unassuming wargamer whose wit has entertained us all. I think it is your loving, backhanded-but-obviously-accurate renditions of your friends during your multi-player games that reminds us all of how genuinely good it is to have friends.
    Oh, my, on re-reading that last part I think I may have imbibed too much tequila too quickly.
    What I meant to say was, nice going, Conrad.
