Forbodian Cavalry - finished!

As indicated in my earlier post on these guys, I have now finally finished painting them.  Having started off life as Italeri Mamelukes, they now serve King Boris of Forbodia.  Here they are having an experimental gallop around on the wargames table.
I made up the colour scheme as I went along.  The paintwork is in a simplified 'toy soldier' style.
These lads certainly look as if they're up for a fight!
The paintwork was topped off with two coats of varnish. I hope it's enough!

More targets for my artillery!

Seriously, they look like they are going to be a handful to deal with on the battlefield. A very nice addition to you army.

All the best,

Bob

They are practising the art of running down gunners already!
Have you decided which army you are building first?

Robert (Bob) Cordery said...

Tim Gow,

I intend my first army to be that of Laurania. It will be uniformed in a mixture of dress and campaign uniform ... which I have yet to design!

All the best,

Bob

Tim Gow said...

Design? Interesting idea - I just made it up as I went along!

A bright and cheery looking bunch of vagabonds.

Mark my words, they will be trouble.

Splendid looking fellows. Best gallop straight at the enemy's guns, smaller target profile that way.

I think I can hear Bob's gunners trembling at the thought of them!

Don
The two tricks are: 1. Don't paint much detail (easy for me), and 2. Loads of varnish.

Quick? They took a little over 2 weeks from (re-) opening the box to photographing the finished toys.
