From RayR: 28mm 95th Rifles (120 points)


Finally our defending champion has entered the field with that irrepressible,  well-worn old chestnut: the 95th Rifles.

From Ray:
As you requested I've been slogging my guts out trying to get my first entry in. I didn't think I'd make my Xmas deadline but its done. My first entry into this years Challenge is a 28mm Napoleonic one. Not the usual 15's!  Here we have 24 Front Rank figures, representing two companies of the famous 95th Rifles. 
Special guest stars include: 
Rifleman Harris
A Sergeant, not Hakeswell!
Sharpe?
Col. Forbes Champagne, what a great name!

Very nice work Ray. I'm not actually sure if I've ever seen 28s from your brush, so this is quite unique. (BTW, I don't think that's Sharpe as he's actually wearing his shako and I don't see him sporting a mullet...)

These 24 figures will give Ray a very tidy 120 points to enter onto the roster. Well done Mr. Rousell!

  11. Excellent job Ray! It's nice to see you have come up to the one, true scale!

    :)

    Thanks for going easy on else fellow Ronin with your first entry - given your amazing painting speed I was a little worried you would weigh in not with 24 but 240 painted 28's

    Have a great holiday, everyone
