WSS British Horse

Had these painted up for a while and thought I better get around to posting them on here. The command pack arrived from Old Glory UK so I set to work. I completed the last two regiments of horse that I required to complete the British Horse contingent for the battle of Ramilles. First up is Schomberg's horse with black cuffs. The figures are all from Blue Moon and the flag from the Warflag site.

Next up is Wood's regiment of horse, again at a strength of 2 squadrons. For these i decided on the drummer in reverse colours. Trying to find accurate details for the musicians within the British troops at this time is rather problematic. The figures are all Blue Moon.

A finally for your viewing pleasure here are a couple of photos of the completed British horse and dragoon regiments. The figures are a mix of Blue Moon, Dixon's and Warrior.

In my continuing search for a suitable Marlborough figure for a command stand I am awaiting an order from Minifigs for their named figure. I have received some figures from Black hat for his runners so I am envisaging a base with Marlborough plus 1 other mounted officer and probably a runner and a foot ensign.

Got to love those black cuffs and turn backs on Schomberg.. :o)

What did you think of the runners? Did you order the Black Hat commanding officers as well? :o)

Cheers for the comments guys. @ Steve, the Black hat runners look great, but I've gone for Minifig generals as dislike the Black hat horses

I was so disappointed I actually sold them unpainted..! Glad you liked the runners... here's mine... the commanding officers are Minifgs so also may be of interest...
