These have taken a longer time than the multitude of infantry battalions I've been churning out! I've been at these for over a month now, and I've got 3 more Bavarian cavalry regiments to go. Hope to get the rest out of the way quicker!
The riders are form HaT set 8030 with the horses from Esci set 218. The horses just seem to be nicer than those that came with the riders. The only drawback with the Esci horses are the lack of reins and circular mold marks on one side of the flanks. I couldn't do anything about mold marks, but I tried to rectify the lack of reins by gluing cotton thread from horses' mouth to riders' fists. It was very fiddly and after a lot of swearing, I'm still not sure if it was worth the effort.
Also completed is the first of 8 regimental guns for VI Corps. The gunner is from HaT set 8229 with a head mod from HaT set 8095 (what else?). Works well, I think! I'll also probably use Zvezda gunners in the mix, too. I'll probably also add the cotton wool smoke to the port-fire at some stage as well.
