Here Comes The Cavalry!

At long last, I have finished the first (and possibly only) cavalry brigade of the Confederate Army of Oxford. I've got to admit it; I hate painting cavarly. There is something about the horses, with their combination of wide open areas and complex harnesses, that drives me crazy. Still, the outcome is darn satisfactory. Cavarly figures have a nice size and heft that you dont get with infantrymen. My brigade has nine riders at the moment, though I might cut that down to eight in battle to give a more even two-rank appearnce.

Once again, all of the figures are from Sash and Sabre, and they don't disappoint. 

I am especially proud of my 'dappled grey' in the back rank.
