I was itching to see what could be achieved with some sculpted additions to the light cavalry box. For me and I'm sure many others this has been a long and eagerly awaited release, in my case I've been hoping to create some early 1500's French Ordonnance archers and the first effort isn't too bad if I do say so myself !

To achieve the shape of the base coat skirt I had to glue the rider to the horse which may prove tricky when painting. I may try different ways of doing this but nothing springs to mind as yet.

Looks good  :)

Could you sculpt part of a horse and saddle as a temporary figure mount when sculpting the figures?

cheers

Good work Stuart  :)

I could wish Michael would sculpt a few more different heads in soft caps though...  ::)

Excellent work Stuart  :-* :-* :-*

You talented so and so  ;) :)

Re: my comments about Procreate being less tacky at Salute? Well, I bought some more, as the other stuff was more then three years old and it was more tacky than usual but not as tacky as the older stuff- of course it could have been the mixing ratio that but I think I prefer the stuff that's three years old and probably going off!!

Neat looking conversion, look forward to seeing it in glorious colour.

I always paint cavalry with the rider in place, and rarely have difficulty painting them.

Nice work. :)

Plastic bits and metal horse - superglued? If you've glued it lightly enough is there a chance you could wiggle the bond loose and take the rider off intact, greenstuff and all? Could be a bit hairy, though.

Beautiful as always.  I can only imagine what wonders your fertile mind will produce from the new kit.
Now what is this whole life of mortals but a sort of comedy, in which the various actors, disguised by various costumes and masks, walk on and play each one his part, until the manager waves them off the stage?

Quick out the blocks Stuart !! - and looking excellent. Seems to fit well on the Foundry horse - which is better sized for cavalry who rode into battle.

He is indeed!!

Yeah, quite so. They mainly rode horses that were capable of walking! Seriously!! They had a completely different gait to modern horses and indeed the chargers of the same time period. Of course, I've forgotten the name of the said horses but I could look it up eventually when the garage of doom has been tackled!

I agree with Phil - I always paint with the rider firmly glued in place. It provides for a tougher bond, as well as ensuring that the rider has the right "seat" before you put paint to figures. Sometimes it needs real care to paint and some re-touching but I prefer the result, and if one is a little worried about the possibility of bare metal/undercoat then a wash of Van Dyke brown into all the shadowy little places before you add the colour soon solves that problem.

I like working with both rider and mount separately during the painting process. My answer is a bit old school. Whether plastic or metal I always drill and pin the rider to his mount. I only attach after painting. Minimizes the glue required but still creates a good bond.

Cheers,
Fred

Thanks for your thoughts chaps.

I also drill and pin as I've found it easier to paint and a stronger bond though I will see how the single cast painting goes as there's some potential for time saving I reckon.

I'll re-post when he's coloured in and his companions currently on the workbench.
