To this day, some historians claim that the outcome of Waterloo was more Ney's fault than anything else. I don't entirely agree...if Napoleon had sent in his grosse bottes a bit earlier, perhaps he might have won. But who can tell at this point? Anyways, nicely done. Though Liebegirl is right about the leading horse's legs, their position only adds to the piece's excitement. Leave 'em as they are.
No-one can tell. Those are only speculations and tons of papers were filled by this topic...and they will be still. No worries, this piece will never be fixed, it's too old now. And I would love to do some better version one day, so I can see if I've improved or not x)
