Thank you. They were very easy to paint. The faces and the cloth had great detail.

Mark, beautiful work on those figures!  When they were first released I tried for about a month to buy a box, but none of the hobby shops I shop at had them in stock or seemed able to get them.  Seeing your painted versions makes me think I should try again.  Thanks for the reminder!

You've done a good job there, Mark. I know the Perry ones seem to be the critical darlings of the LAF NWF gang, and for good reason, but there doesn't seem to be much wrong with these.  They paint up very nicely.

Thank you. Have seen the Perry sculpts and they look very nice too. But the best news is that Wargames Atlantic are bringing out Afghan Cavalry. Arms and legs from infantry kit can be used for even greater variety.
