I finally completed the Old Glory Pathan horsemen last night. We have been using these guys in various states of completion for many months now. After receiving a large parcel of even more cavalry, I thought it prudent to complete the ones I'd already started. It is satisfying to finally have them finished, plus, Dave is terrified of cavalry, so this bunch are worth their weight in gold!
Although they aren't the best poses, they are pretty nice. There are a couple of duplicate poses which are a little obvious, but mixed in a bunch they blend better. The horses are all individual, and there are some really nice poses amongst them. I really like the figures in the poshteens the most, but they sport two swords, or a curved sheath for a straight drawn sword, depending on how you see it. That's Old Glory for you. A couple of these guys also have modern rifles, a little out of period for what we are doing but really unnoticeable on the table. I've painted one horse black and his rider in red, should we need to nominate a leader amongst them. (Click the images to enlarge)
