American Civil War Union Cavalry – Completed

And they’re done! I fell a little bit behind schedule on these guys but I finally got them finished to tabletop standard.

American Civil War Union Cavalry – Perry Miniatures

This was a nice kit to assemble and build, not too complicated with only 2-part horses and one arm and hat to fit to each rider.

Although they came with the option of 3 models to a base, I stuck with individual basing for these models, just in case anyone wanted to use them for different games systems.

I’m not exceptionally happy with the way the photo’s have turned out, I seem to be plagued with an awkward light! These guys are on ebay just now if anyone wants to take a look, just click here.


Coming up this week – Union Cavalry and Perdita

I took a fancy to painting some American Civil War this week, and after being so impressed by Perry Miniatures Napoleonic British I decided to plump for their Civil War Cavalry box.


This box comes with the option of assembling the riders as either Union or Confederate, with 12 horses for them to sit on. The quality of the sculps was excellent again, and the horses do remind me a bit of Games Workshop sculpts.

The horses come in 24 pieces, with 12 left sides with heads and 12 right sides with tails. Any left side fits with any right side and just needs a litle bit of green stuff on the neck join if you are fussy about a little gap.


While awaiting delivery of a new can of undercoat, I scrabbled around to find something already undercoated in my box of bits to paint, and found Perdita Ortega.

This is just a play about figure just now and will work on it in my spare time. I did have the full gang with every intention of starting Malifaux! Just like I was going to start Dreadball!
