British Mounted General - Painted

I spent about three hours last evening working on this new British Mounted General from the Fife & Drum range of AWI miniatures. He was fun to paint, and easy too, and I really liked the way that he turned out. Now I just have to figure out how to make a vignette on the base, either with another figure on foot, say, a drummer or officer, or a pile of rocks etc. Since his face has a "I mean business" look to him, I might christen him as Major General Charles (No Flint) Grey in Howe's army during the Philadelphia Campaign of 1777.

 Rear view of the general, along with some foot Guards for perspective.

A comparative picture of General Grey and Colonel Cadwalader of the Philadelphia Associators, again for perspective purposes.

Now I have to start on the officer/ADC holding his hat in his hand.
