Ilkley Old School
A classic figure , well painted !
Very nice Mark, love the map!
Maps seem to be a feature of classic Napoleonics. I was tempted to make it a newspaper - the Times perhaps.
Thanks Tony. I am really enjoying painting my ckassic Napoleonics. Who would have thought I would be using ink for black lining figures ar my age.
A definite improvement, well done.Have put the 20mm Napoleonics on the back burner.If you read my blog you'll see why.http://jim-duncan.blogspot.co.uk/2017/11/surgical-strike.htmlandhttp://jim-duncan.blogspot.co.uk/2017/11/a-date-to-remember.html
Your painting has really brought that haughty-looking aristocrat to life, Mark! Well done indeed.WM
Good job there Mark. "Daddy" Hill must be an accomplished horseman to be able to manage his mount while a map flaps around in his hand. I know from personal experience how difficult it is to unfold / refold an OS map while in the saddle. I now use an app on my phone to navigate when out riding.Dave
Hi JimLeft a message on your blog. Looking forward to seeing your 20mm promoted to your painting table.
Weren't all British Generals haughty aristocrsts. Except perhaps Picton.
No doubt Aristocrats at the time learnt horsemanship and mapping reading as soon as they good walk. Hinton Hunt Austrian Mounted General is also reading a map.
