Flashman has been one of my literary hero's since I first read about his adventures as a teenager . When Wargames Illustrated made a figure in 28mm of the great man himself I had to get one ! and there he sat on my painting tray for several months - till today when I found myself without anything prepared for painting - so I decided to paint him up . I painted him in the uniform of the 17th Lancers , who he served with . He could be appearing in some of my Colonial games in the near future.
