1897 , The Cavalry .


Been doing some more of 'A's Victorian project and have painted up some British cavalry . They are a local unit, a Squadron of  the Westmorland and Cumberland Yeomanry .


They are of course 28mm Irregular Miniatures from their 'Home Service' range.


To oppose them we have a unit of German Uhlans , the 2nd Pomeranian Regt. No. 9 


Here we see them on manoeuvres with some Jaegers , I  hope to have got enough painted for a small game next week when 'A' calls around .

  2. More lovely toys... :-)
    The joy of a ‘fantasy ‘ setting... you can choose to paint ALL the prettiest units regardless of if they ever saw combat in real life...

    All the best. Aly

  4. Those Irregular minis scrub up nicely. Ashamed to say, I like the Uhlans best.

    1. They have the lance cast into the hand , a major plus , I hate gluing weapons onto figures.

  5. Fantastic painting. I've got a few of these and must get them painted (though I'm afraid they won't look as good as the above).

    1. Think the high gloss varnish helps the 'Toy Soldier' look .
