The Canaries come under fire!!

Hi Gents,
Once again thank you to all who have taken the time to follow noticed quite a few new faces appeared over the last month.One of the new faces to appear is Dave Jarvis whose work you will see appearing here on a regular basis.Dave's work in these shots are the Neuchatel Battalion newly arrived yesterday (these are still to be based) and the 95th rifles which were the first unit Dave did for me.The Highlanders from the war office didn't make it this weekend but should be here Monday. I based the Portuguese yesterday that Dave painted last month so some pics of these tomorrow.

French Camp Perry figures from Artmaster.

Tired looking guard painted by Dave still to be based..

One of last nights gypsies painted by the war office up to no good.

There's been a Murder!

The discovery call out the guard (those crates in the background by Phil Olley).

Neuchatel Grenadiers head to the scene (Perry miniatures).

Order out the battalion (Artmaster from eBay).

The gypsies is not alone rifles behind some last valley scenery..

The battalion leave camp to extract revenge.

I don't think they know what they are letting themselves in for.

The rifles let rip! I think the casualties figures will be based individually.

Green uniform must have been very handy in the woods.

Each rifle a crack shot.

Thanks for having a look
Best wishes
