I remember very well that I ordered this set in December 2012. At that time HäT has had announced this box and my vendor offered this set. After orderingmysupplier told me ,there weredelivery problemsandhe would send it to me later.So far so good. Since I hadnot yetpaid for the goods, I forgotthe purchase orderwith time. As you'd probablyimagine my surpriseanddelight whenthe seton06/13/2015finally hasarrivedwith me. A long time without cavalry. During this time If felt like Lee in Gettysburg waiting for J.E.B Stuart ;-)
The box contains 3 identical sprues with a total of 12 troopers and 12 horses and some additional parts.
As you can see on the picture the sprue contains two different kind of troopers. Three Hussars and one Lancer from a Light Squadron. In addition, the sprue contains arms and weapons for exchange.
The second from the left is the Lancer, the others are Hussars.
Please have a look on the rifles and the rifle butts. I think it's a funny construction :-)
One sprue contains four horses in two identical poses.
Other figures I started painting a year ago and now they are finished. The figures are from Caesar Miniatures and the scale is 1/72. The quality of the figures is very good and it hascaused mea lot of joy to paint them.
At the moment I'm busy with painting the horses of the French Dragoons and while the oil paints are drying I used the time to continue painting this figure. The figure comes from an old Revell set and the scale is 1/32. I startedsome time agowiththepainting of thefigure,somehowlost interestbut nowit was a nicebreak from allthe horses. All that'smissing nowis a smallbasefor the figure. Maybe I get some ideas in the next time.
Almost ayear has passedon this blogsincemy last post. The past yearhas given mea lot of workbutalsobroughtosteoarthritisin the fingers.This is also the reason why I don't have paint figures for so long.
Butnow I have finished thetroopersof the 20thRegiment.Okay,stillwithout horses. By the time thehorsesare painted,the'll just have to goon foot. But that's not a problem becausethey're Dragoons ;-)
I hopewith the horsesit will notlast as long as with the troopers.
