US Cavalry characters

 My little man cave is located in the garage. It's a 3rd of the area and it's sectioned off. Most of the year it's pleasant but as we go through autumn  out comes my  old small blower heater. It works well and quickly warms up the room. Or it did. With the temperature plummeting last night I switch it on and yes you guessed it - nothing.  Fortunately we had another old heater stashed away for just such an occasion, it works but without the blower it takes ages to warm up my cave.  I can see it being a hard winters painting!

This project is near completion - just the  supply wagon to photograph, all ready to go. Anyway here we have the two US Cavalry character packs from PeterPig.

First up is pack 61. Major Rob

Followed by pack 62. Sergeant Rooney

Each character pack comes with three versions of the character, mounted, on foot and dead.

The next project is coming along well though as usual slow and hope to get on with it if I can stay warm!

Thanks for stopping buy.

Where's my horse?

It's been a few weeks since my last post and the whole time I've had these  figures finished and sitting on my desk. 

Again they are US Cavalry from PeterPig's Wild West range. 

Above are dismounted troopers with carbines (pack 57) and below dismounted troopers with pistols (pack 58).

Foot command (pack 59)

Crow Scouts on foot (pack 64)

This gives me two troops like the one below.

There are a couple of character figures that are finished and a supply wagon to base which will be in the next and last post in this project.

Thanks for taking a look.
