The templar fighting swords & mace feels little to fantacy for my with that weapon-
But it is a very good artwork al three (yes, water at nights is hard to make good).

Not to take away from any Osprey artist, but Peter Dennis's ability to pain nighttime naval scenes is awe-inspiring. In Alabama vs. Kearsarge I was really worried about the plate showing Wachusett ramming Florida. Middle of a moonless night. Dennis managed to simultaneously convey the lack of visibility on a moonless night while making what is happening in the scene clearly visible.

He does the same with the Taranto painting. Well shot, Dennis.

Taranto and RLI both to be illustrated by Pete Dennis! Good authors for both books too, so that's all the boxes ticked as far as I'm concerned.
