My God! Maiwand! Afghans!

Hi,

In my last blog entry I talked a little about the scenic item/diorama of the Battle of Maiwand  I was working on and why (you can read about it HERE). Well, since then I've finished a unit of 8 Afghans byWargames Foundry and 11 Brits including an NCO and Officer from Artizan Designs. The fist pics to go with the diorama will be the Afghans. This is really en experiment of sorts as I'm entering a painting competition which usually I would just enter using a blue background so I thought I'd try something different this time.

At this point I feel I must apologise for the quality of the pics as I haven't got my usual lighting rig set up and at the moment these are the best that I can produce. I will of course take more pics at a later date when I have moved and have much more space!

Tomorrow it's the turn of the Brits.

Bye for now

  1. Very, very nice! The skull atop the flag pole is a rather wonderfully macabre touch.

    1. Thanks Michael- i'm going to add some script to the banner too- it's just a matter of finding something suitable. It hasn't been varnished as of yet though the mini has.

  2. The back drop works well. Like the creamy white you have used and the nice contrast of the blue whites of some of the sashes and turbans with the creamy white.

    1. Thanks Moonshadow,

      There are about 20-25 different hues of white in that little lot! :>)
