Great looking unit. Your horses are especially nice.
There can be no doubt that the success of the attack on and stand against the enemy at St. Lambert sur Dives can largely be attributed to this officer’s coolness ... London Gazette, no.36812, 27 November 1944
I paint my horses with artist oil colours. , I started to use them on the classic flat 30mm German Zinnfiguren as a child. Long long ago. Cloth and similar in acryl. I like the different effects on the surfaces. Birthdays are awfull, you start to calculate. But some nice Warlord miniatures are a good balsam.
They are nice - I've never used oils (and probably never will), but they do work well the horses. I keep wondering about some of these to use as Blinder cavalry for the Witchfinder rules - must resist! But these look great, IO - how about a close-up of those heavies too, please?
@IO: Apologies! They are nice; they look pretty hard, too! 'Tis a pity there weren't any in the ECW; there is a suit of reiter armour in a museum in Jedburgh, probably stolen from a mercenary by some reivers or by a bunch of prickers who went to the Continent. It's a pity that WG don't sell any of their Cavalry boxes' contents (like these) as separates, unlike the infantry; you can buy the horses, but not the riders. Same with the mounted Dragoons or ECW cavalry ... though they're metal, of course. And - a second (belated) apology! Herzlichen Glückwunsch!
And now the Musketeers are ready to support the Horse against the Imperials.
And to get Gustav Adolph a sniper for the Imperials. There was a story circulated in Protestant Germany that he was shot by a Hunter who used Freikugeln. Made with the help of the Devil. (No, that's no fools day joke)
