Wow.

The horses look much better than earlier models I have.

Anyone know if they suffer from the "tiny horse syndrome" some have complained about?

Yes, agreed on the (much) nicer horses. Having regularly criticised BM horses for their very poor anatomy/un-horselike poses (to the point of refusing to buy BM figures at all), these are a much better effort – the dragoon horse munching the grass is a splendid looking chap. If they make these horses available for the FIW and AWI ranges, I shall definitely be a customer.

This is actually shaping into a very nice range, with separate packs for figures with montero and monmouth caps which I don't think many other manufacturers do certainly not in 15/18mm. In most cases you just get them mixed with other types of headgear, which doesn't allow you to easily make up Oxford Army units, for example, which were issued monteros "en masse".

Well done, BM.

They look great – does anyone know if they would be OK alongside traditional 15mm units eg Essex, Mattchlock etc? I imagine they'd be too big to mix in the same units.

Cavalry appears to be not as large as the infantry making them more suitable alongside other ranges.

I ordered some this week so I'll be able to confirm later.

True enough Flashman the horses are a bit bigger than Essex one's but the riders are about the same size. They do look nice.
