I was short of mounted command figures for 'Army Blue' so I thought I would order a suitable figure from Replica Metal Soldiers (Painted Traditional Toy Soldiers | Replica Metal Soldiers & Models) , he's the classic Lancer Officer from Britains and will be painted up as a Germanic type Uhlan and whilst I was on the site I noticed they do a mounted Highland Officer - you gotta have one of them I thought ! . They come in two pieces withe the body cavity of the horse hollowed out to save metal - the originals of course where hollow cast , they fit together very well and only needed a small amount of 'green stuff' to fit the joint . I've mounted them on bases to aid stability and will undercoat them when they are set .
*Alluding to the TV series 'Wallace and Gromit' for my overseas viewers - "cracking cheese Gromit"!
