Although I've been busy painting 15mm MDF buildings for the Cold War Gone Hot project in the early days of the month, I have also been working on a small number of Dixon Miniatures' ACW cavalry figures to represent the Sussex Light Dragoons.
Do I need more cavalry, or any more ACW figures in general? Well, of course not! But, as fellow Wargamers' reading this you are nodding sagely and thinking like me; when did need ever come into it really? I have painted them in a more contemporary style than I generally use for my long established ACW armies, but on the table in a game who will notice even?
Meanwhile, back in 15mm, I've finished two modern apartment blocks and started on a row of shops! All go here!
A fine set of dragoons David and one can never have enough ACW even if it is enough I say!ReplyDelete
I have to agree Christopher, no such word as enough...Delete
A very nice addition to the collection Mr.B.ReplyDelete
Many thanks Jon.Delete
Some stern looking troopers there David.ReplyDelete
Stern? No, but smiling in early photography was discouraged!Delete
Looking mighty fine Sir!ReplyDelete
Will they do though?😉Delete
Very nice indeed David…ReplyDelete
I have a fondness for the Sussex Light Dragoons as I made some using Airfix figures when the world was younger… and possibly in black and white.
All the best. Aly
Yes, the past is often thought of in black & white.Delete
A splended addition there Dave! looking forward to seeing them in action. Is any collection ever finished? Always something to add.... paint and enjoy whatever takes you fancy!!ReplyDelete
Sound advice for our fellow gamers Paul.Delete
David it was all the small and interesting units that attracted me to the ACW. Ive still got a pile of Cherokee's to paint for my rebs. I dont know if they were effective but they were certainly interesting. Keep up the good work.ReplyDelete
No doubt they are painted by now then...😁Delete
You have done a nice job on these and agree with you and others, there is always something else to buy and paint!ReplyDelete
Thanks for the support!Delete
It's good to see these. I presume they are Dixon. Is it too much to ask for a photo showing off the flag design more?ReplyDelete
There's surely no such thing as too much cavalry.
They are away in the waiting to be varnished box now. That depends on the weather mainly, so it could be a while...Delete
