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.
After sitting at the painting desk watching every single episode of Sharpe, I decided to take a sab at painting some historical miniatures for a change. I did these guys in the colours of the 44th East Essex as a tribute to the North Essex in Sharpe. At least I hope I did. Historical accuracy doesn’t really matter too much when painting Space Marines!
It took a few weeks on and off, probably about 40 hours in total, and I’m quite pleased with how they turned out. I wasn’t sure how years of painting Games Workshop models would cross over to historical miniatures.
These are from Perry Miniatures, and come in a box of 40 multi part models for around £20. The eagle eyed may notice there is only 30 models in the pictures, the other ten are going to be painted separately as a unit of skirmishers. The 95th Rifles probably, go Sharpe!
