" The other day I picked up some cheap Fife and Drum cavalry from eBay. The reason a lot of them were cheap is because they didn't have horses to ride on…"

They look great with those horses!

The horses are pretty good. Head are connected to the body via the rein, so there are no gaps.
The saddle comes extra, so that you can replace it or use one cast on the mini (perhaps with some shaving).

My club uses them to give starters something to paint on events. Hopefully they will do standing horses, too.

I used mine for some Warlord Ancient Gaul riders that I bought years ago for dirt cheap. Worked well, with a little carving to the blanket.
I hear tell that the next horse set may be similar but smaller.

Yeah. That was exactly why I did not leap at the opportunity to get some horses. They are much larger than most 28mm metal horses in my armies. I am hoping for a smaller scale set in the future.

I have some of the really lovely Footsore Welsh. Only thing is, having played with them a couple of times I don't think the heavy cavalry will survive and was thinking about replacing the horses with these. I think they will go nicely judging by the pictures

Yes, they are "a hand or 2" higher than my Victrix horses, even compensating for the galloping pose.
But my logic is that horses came in all different sizes!

I found them oddly long in the body- didn't take to them.

Plastic horses and metal figures?

Is that even allowed?

Why not? I have a unit of converted Minifigs S Range riders on Hat plastic horses. The Hat sculpting is so much better and looks like a horse rather than a daschund but each to his own.

Marcus Brutus15 Nov 2023 8:14 p.m. PST

Big horses. They'd work nicely with Crusader riders and would mix nicely with Crusader horses. I think they might be fine in their own units but they won't mix nicely with Foundry, Aventine, Footsore or most of the Gripping Beast horse.

Games Workshop managed to get away with it in the 1990's.

More recently, Perrys have done some metal riders to go with their plastic horses.

Granted, it makes for a bit top heavy figures, but usually they do not fall over easily.

I stand corrected.

Thank You.
