DISMOUNTED CAVALRY FINISHED

Just this minute finished the cornet for these chaps, so the paint is still wet. The cornet depicts 2 hands emerging from a cloud, one holding a sword, the other a trowel. The motto (in utrumque paratus) means "prepared with either". It's one of the cornets of Captain Philip Twistleton, the other I used on the mounted bods I finished a while ago.


The model of Stokesay  castle in the background is a bit battered and dusty. I made it about 10 years ago, and unfortunately it is for 28mm figures, so I will need to do some 54mm buildings soon (maybe a sort of compressed Rockingham castle).

There are some strange lines appearing on the second picture. I am not sure how they got there but apologies for them!
