Westmorland & Cumberland Yeomanry

Got the first of my mounted figures cast and painted . I got the Hussar molds from Prince August for my birthday , the horses are a bit of a swine to cast - they come in 2 half's and I've had to vent the molds at the horses legs ( to allow the metal to run to the very ends of the hooves ) .

 They have been painted as the Westmorland and Cumberland Yeomanry a local unit that was  raised in Victorian times . The molds take quite a bit of metal so its not going to be a cavalry heavy army !.


  1. Spiffing Chaps Sir! Excellent looking figures - I can't wait to see the rest of the unit...

  2. They will certainly add tone...
