I watched War Horse on stage recently, and I figured that if I were to ever paint up some 1914-era Brits, it would be fun to have Captain Nicholls and Captain Stewart as cavalry command figures (and yeah, I know they got killed at the end of Act I). The question is, though, are there any miniature makers that make cavalry command figures that could reasonably pass for the two, even at afar?

What's wrong with these figures?: link To my mind the 2 officers from the movie are not that distinctive.

Musketeer Miniatures also have command that would work for Stewart: link

@Comrade Commissar
Thanks, I'm certain if I paint his moustache black, he'll pass well as Captain Stewart.

@Jeff Ewing
The quality in the preview pic is really low, so I can't really tell. Captain Nicholls is meant to be rather young (Tom Hiddleston was about 30 when he played him in the movie version), while most miniature makers tend to make their command figures more middle-aged.
