British FIW Command stand

Over the weekend I completed this project, which I've been working on for a few weeks.

The is a British Senior officer is a Front Rank figure from the SYW range, as is the staff Officer (he is from their artillery crew collection). The hound is from Warbases and I painted up with the same colouring as one of my beagles :-)

Overall I'm thrilled with how this came out and think its probably my best work to date, aided significantly by how consistently I've been painting since Christmas.  Now to put him on the table and find out if he is a seasoned and clever Officer, or an ignorant man of entitlement...

  1. Oh now that's nice. Always struggle with 'natural' things like fur and wood, that looks really natural.

    1. Thanks Phil. I was inspired by General Cornwallis having his hounds with him on campaign in the movie "The Patriot"

  6. Absolutely gorgeous mate! Front Rank stuff is just wonderful for this period especially. Love the fact the beagle has a "family resemblance" :-)
