AVBCW: Equine Madness


As most painters and gamers know, painting horses is one of the most difficult things to do. So, having painted all my Colourful White Russian Cavalry, what do I do ? Yup, embark on some AVBCW BUF Cavalry….

As you can see, they are multi part figures. Both the Great War Miniatures, and Musketeer cavalry are multi part figures.

Each have about five (5) parts to put together all told. The GWM have integral horse and rider pieces, but then have separate arms for sword, lance, rifle or pistol. The Musketeer riders are separate and have a solid fist that needs drilling out to accept a steel pin for a lance (thanks Rich). Both have separate attachments for rifles and sabres to the horses’ furniture.

I’ve already got a dozen or so BUF Cavalry, but over the last year for Xmas and b’day pressies have accumulated more, so that I have some proper squads for both BUF and MHC forces.

Not all this pile of lead will get painted by Evesham, as half of them are for the MHC which are not appearing there – I am typecast as a BUF commander it seems. 🙂
That’ll teach me to wear so much Black.

I’ll b e using Kevin Dallimore’s painting guide books to paint the horses.

Given that the BG-5 Evesham event is coming up, this is my next goal to finish off another unit or two so I can field them there, especially as JP is convinced I’m going to screw up his forces. I don’t know why – I am so innocent (he says polishing his halo).

And then, there is another set of Equine madness that should come week after next…
