These chaps are ancient in every sense of the word! I remember owning some of these Hinchliffe cavalrymen in the '70s and so was pleased to bag them very cheaply at a recent show. The horses were sourced from the large box of equine lead which I rescued from JR's attic last year and include castings from several manufacturers, including Hinchliffe, Essex and Warrior. Spears were cut from florist's wire. All have been 'treated' to my usual basic paintwork with a finishing coat of Ronseal. The bases are 8x6cm MDF.
