The Thin Red Line .


Russell's quote in his dispatch to The Times was actually - "a thin red streak tipped with a line of steel". I enjoyed painting the 93rd  Regiment (Sutherland Highlanders) and as Conrad sent me some more Highlanders I will be able to to the Highland Brigade in the future.


I was impressed by the Stretlets figures which are remarkably accurately modelled and with only a few 'odd' pose . Painting the moulded on flag took a bit of thought , but I'm pleased with the result.


I now need some Russian Hussars to charge them and these are being cleaned up ready for spraying . Another unit per side and I have enough for a small game . I am going to use 'Black Powder' with suitable adjustments for the period.
