The Magnificent Eight

I haven’t played with horse mounted figures for decades so when we saw some Great War Miniatures WWI British Cavalry up for grabs at a very reasonable price at Red Knight Wargames it was very tempting. Once I’d suggested to the boy Slug how this might make an excellent cavalry squad for the BUF in our VBCW games his eyes lit up and lacking the readies his grovelling began.

He’s done a reasonable job, but it took me more effort to get him to get the damned things painted, than it did for him to get me to pay for them. The result is a trifle underworked but lovely figures none the less.

Of course being cavalry there’s a lot more work to them than the usual infantry and these were the Slug’s first ever.

I imagine he might bring himself to be happy with them once they’re on the table and scaring the bejesus out of the enemy.
