The Riders of Alzheim

 Forgive the very rough nature of these pictures. We got home from a day-and-a-night away in Castlemaine to find a big old cardboard box on the doorstep. I knew immediately what it was. I had to wait until dinner had been eaten and the children put to bed before I could open it though.
These are 11 regiments of Spencer Smith cavalry, three are painted as cuirassiers and the rest as Dragoons and other Chevaux-legere, very kindly donated by a US reader, Mr Gary C_.

More tomorrow.

I would think Mr C would be very happy to know his lads are in good hands.

SO how does your wife feel about the plan to paint the floor grass green? If you sand the varnish lightly the paint should adhere.....

Thought I recognised those boys. I can also vouch that they fight as good as they look. Enjoy them. We have. - Mike
