Finished at last !
I have to say these things have been a right royal pain to get done. I set off with these like a scolded cat at the start of the challenge and then ground to a halt after I had finished the horses and two figures.
These are 28mm AWI figures from Perry Miniatures and excellent figures they are, they are not even that complicated (it's mostly red and white after all) however for some reason we just didn't gel and I really had to push to get to the end.
I am happy with the final unit and at 10 points a pop these twelve figures should net a handy 120 points towards my total. I've spent a bit of time this week getting some horses done (I use oil paints and they take days to dry) so I have a small unit of 28mm AWI Queens Hussars and a couple of 15mm SYW units worth of horses ready to go.
These are great Ken, well worth all of that toil I feel. Simple uniforms indeed, but very eyecatching and in red and white, you can't mistake them for anything but some fine upstanding British cavalry British. The oil-painted horses came out great, not a technique I've used myself but people seem to get great results with it. How did you find the casting on these Perrys? I've found some of the ranges I've bought can be a nightmare to clean up, but these castings look good.
These have been such a drag and you've more cavalry coming up? Now that's dedication.
