Here are my Mounted Militia for the SC back country battles.
And some Mounted Officers for special regiments.

I was so stoked to get these back from John Bryant, who painted them. And boy did he not disappoint me. I really like these.
I put these up as WIP's, because I couldn't wait to show them off.
Once the groundwork dries I'll finish the bases and take some competed unit shots.

I made these from Perry bodies, KMM heads and various plastic arms. It was a lot of cutting, drilling and filing to get the figures the way I wanted them to look.
I'm really pleased with these and I have many more in the works.

These are 4 different Officers……A Philly Associator. A VA officer, a Loyalist line Officer and a Loyalist
Commander. Made with KMM heads. Many more are in the process.
