Half way there

Well, that's half of my heavy cavalry done.


This is the command unit of my "army", with the army general on a wingless hippogriff, his personal standard, a musician, and his household knights.

The knights and the general are all Perry plastics, the hippogriff a repainted D&D prepainted mini, and the trumpeter a Perry metal. The annoying thing about the metal figures is that, despite being from the same range, the riders have the "seat-back" of the saddle sculpted on them, as opposed to the plastic ones, which do not; this means that unless one was prepared to so do minor cut-and-sculpt, the riders (and mounts) are not interchangeable.

That aside, I am pretty pleased with the result. A full unit of armoured knights with a banner is always a sight to see. Another seven (unarmoured) horses to go then...

Those guys look great.
Something to admire when they attend your military parade; something to fear when they're opposite you on the battlefield.
