[London, James S. Virtue.] [n.d., 1870.]

The Battle of Miani, 17th February 1843, between the Bombay Army of the East India Company and the Baluch Army, Sind (now Pakistan). In the foreground men of a flank company of the 22nd Cheshire Regiment are shown charging the mass of Baluchi warriors in the dried-up bed of the River Fullaillee. The commander-in-chief, Sir Charles Napier, directs the battle from his horse in the background. Napier's victory over a force ten time the size of his own led to the fall of Hyderabad two days later. Exhibited in Westminster Hall in 1847, Armitage's painting won a premium of £500 and was seen and purchased by Queen Victoria for £400. Napier, however, was critical: ''in Armitage's I am in rear of the troops – whereas I was in front the whole time… Armitage has placed me where I was, as regards the ground; but he has placed the troops wrongly as they did not fight down in the Bed of the river''. The finished plate was published in 'Gems of European Art'.
