I've had the Perry Light Cavalry box for a while, and I had already made them as Hobilars for my War of the Roses army. While I had previously tried painting the base colour on the horses (it was the second thing I tried using an airbrush for, and it was a disaster), I undercoated the whole lot and started again.
These are part of the Green and White retinue, which is intended to be for Henry VII. Unfortunately, it turns out that the correct order when building a historical army is 1- Do research, then 2- Paint models. If you do it the other way, you get "issues"
In this case, issues is that the Duke's of Buckingham (Red and Black) were all dead by the time that Henry VII landed in England. By about 2 years! My choice were to either repaint, or find an alternative. In this case, it seems that Buckingham's rebellion, which ended in his death, was reinforced by Henry, landing as he hoped in 1483 instead of 1485. It's a stretch, but it makes me comfortable, and avoids repainting models.
So, the models were painted in the same fashion as the infantry. Nothing unusual, except that I am now better, and was able to apply the base colour to the horses with the airbrush without trouble this time.
6 Mounted models at 10pts each gives me another 60 points I think.
Coming up next, the last of the retinue blocks of Billmen, and a cannon
All the best Iain
