They comprise three units of 12 horse, my favourite is the ECWC 1 cavalry in pot helmet at rest unit, as you can see they have a superbly hand painted flag. Unit number two comprised mostly the plumed hat at rest post, all in buff coats with some fine detailed touches and what appears to be a Warrior (?) standard bearer on a Hinchliffe horse, he being the only non Hinchliffe figure. UNit number three comprises 12 cavalry in back & breast plate with pistols and the pistol arms have been bent into numerous poses for variation.
Together with the 36 cavalry already painted by me (just finishing the horses for the last 8 figure unit) these chaps will bring me up to a total of 72 painted horse, a very good start which means I can focus on painting the foot regiments. I offer up these shots for contrast to when I have finished the required restoration work, as I say, a good clean up first then rebasing, but I have no intention of touching the existing paint job, they have a charm of their own.
|Lovely 'old school' detail.|
|These are the horses for my 8 figure blue themed unit, Hinchliffe horse are lovely animated castings.|
Finally for now, 'Steve the Wargamer' has asked how Hinchliffe figures measure up for scale against 20mm Tumbling Dice ECW's. I don't have any of them around as the many units I painted were done on commission a couple of years back, however I hope this shot taken against a measure will give some idea Steve?
