Ye Horse

 Stand fast! They're more scared of your pikes than you are of them! In hommage to Mr Gilder, I'm preparing my own King's Lifeguard of Horse.
 The Cuirassiers thunder pasw, trailed by their lesser bretheren.
 Colonel Pook? perhaps. He's a Hinchcliffe one-piece casting. I rather like one-piece cavalry. Quite easy to deal with. Now I think of it, I really ought to do a Peter Young tribute figure. Is that an assasin levelling his piece at the Colonel?
The horde. 29 figures. MAny pin-swords and minor bits of animation in the form of head-twists and arm-bends. This is a fairly ticklish business with the hard white metal used in the casting, but I am relieved to report that I've not yet had any breakages. I have another few in the stash which I'll get sorted out before I make another order to Hinds'.

Splendid looking troops - the old Hinchliffe figures still do the business !

I'm tackling the foot first for my ECW army. So far I have major paint on over 300 foot figures . . . but still a fair amount of details to do . . . *sigh*.

Hark! I can almost hear the thundering hooves. Glorious cavalry, Greg. You've nailed the Gilderesque look.

Best Regards,

Now that's what I call an impressive ECW unit! Splendid. :-)

Cheers,

David.

Thank-you gentlemen. These are about two units od Parliamentary Horse and a small Lifeguard - the latter in imitation of Gilders' Kings Lifeguard.

A fine body of horse, like the cuirassiers
