Parliamentarian Cavalry: Part Two - a WIP

Another four regiments of horse for Parliament. Well that's the plan. If I publish this, then I have to follow through with it!

Variations on a theme of brown. Realised that I used fourteen different browns painting these (if you include the horse tones). When based, with the earth base added I was really disappointed with how they looked, only after the greenery was added did I start thinking "yes, they're alright those".

Flags from Maverick Models - not currently listed as available. Thank you Stuart for your patience with my continued requests to produce specific standards.

Half way through painting these four regiments I became a convert to headswapping, and I do confess to having become slightly evangelical about the subject. So, yes there are a few headswaps amongst their ranks (I particularly like the lobster pot with raised face guard).

Fleetwood's Regiment of Horse suffered from an over zealous spray of varnish. A number of figures suffered from a milky finish. salvaged by applying a coat of gloss varnish, drying them on a radiator, then a coat of brush on matt varnish.
