It's hard to think of new positives to describe your work Chris. Excellent photos. The casualty figures always look so good and natural and enhance each scene. Looking forward to the next instalment!

Thank you to everyone for their kind comments which help keep the enthusiasm going.

Bill is right in that the poor chap has indeed lost his head. He was formerly a Hat British light Bob, converted to a Belgian for Quatre Bras and now has ended his days at Antietam .

Many of the casualties as per the ‘ work in progress’ section, are converts from previous Napoleonic actions.

The problem is that there are never enough for an action as large as this.

Mansfield is about to test Jackson’s battered command and the colossus known as Second Corps with another eight hundred figures is on the way .

Lots to do.

Best wishes,
