My latest issue has been the Irish Horse. I have struggled to find anything that looks right. The nearest are the redoubt Enterprises figures which do have the advantage of beign specifically designed for the period. The horse seem OK with the cushioned saddle and the riders are noce enough until you get to the heads. I ahve painted a couple but am sorely tempted to try head swaps and see what the end result is. This is the Irish Cheiftain from Redoubt. I really dont like the idea of butcherign a figure I have already painted but I just dont see that this is the same quality as the infantry I have painted so far. What do people think?

Yeah that looks like tough one to work with. I have painted a few Redoubt figures and I would agree that their heads are the weak spot.

Cheers.

This is the original Irish Light Horseman with no changes at all painted and based. Again really not happy with the head, the helmet looks wrong and his moustache stretches from ear to ear instead of drooping around his mouth. I may be lookign to alter this chap too.

A change of head on that mini would be a great improvement if your other head swops are anything to go by :)

The Wicker Sheild is cast onto this Irish Cavalry (also the Irish foot I think) I dont think they do them seperately but they are from Redoubt Enterprises so worth checkign the web site.

I had a meeting in York Yesterday so dropped a few more Kern in to the basing department. I like these with the colourfuljackets, in particular the guy with the long Claymore.

Thank you, some of my favourite so far.

So what do we think of the head swap on the Irish light Horse? I think its better rather than perfect but will do for now.
