From RayR: 54mm Anglo-Zulu War Vignette (100 points)

Ray forwarded me images of this great vignette he made for his Dad's birthday. I'll let him describe it.

I’ve attached a few photos of a diorama I made for my Dad, over the last weeks, it's his 70th birthday this Saturday, and I always try and paint him up some kind of diorama of figure, He's not a wargamer but loves display figures. I picked up these figures 2 years ago at a boot fair, while on holiday in the Lake District. I haven't a clue what make they are, but they're 54mm and since it was the 133rd anniversary of both Ilsandlwana and Rorke's Drift on the 22nd of January, I thought they'd fit the part perfectly!!

Great work on the cowhide shields and I really like the animation of the Zulu with the arched back. 

The figures give Ray a base of 88 points, but I'm going to place the entire vignette at 100.

That's a very nice gift you've made for your Dad, Ray. (I'm getting all misty just thinking about it.)
