Anyway, I thoroughly enjoyed putting all this together and as mentioned earlier, it is not a diorama per say, but a mix of a terrain piece and the start of my collection for the Second Afghan War.
I feel it necessary to point out my mistake in that it was only the officers in the 66th (Berkshire) Regiment of Foot that wore blue puttees and the rank and file wore khaki. Many thanks to Mad Guru of Maiwand Day Blog fame for pointing this out to me and acting as a fantastic source of inspiration which is very much an ongoing process for me. Needless to say, I will paint up the unit of the 66th in khaki puttees and this unit will be consigned to that of another! :>) I owe the soldiers that fought on both sides the right to be represented in the correct uniforms that at least.
I hope that you enjoy the photo's; there are pics of the individual soldiers of the 66th Berkshire's too!

Hope that you enjoyed the pics- it was a real pleasure to paint them up.
Bye for now.
