It seems like ages since I actually finished a unit, but finally the first of the Pony Wars Figures start to take to the field.
Ok not quite fighting men but at least the horses for elements of the 7th Cavalry. Possibly the weirdest place start for a project.
The plan is to use them for an adapted version of Sharp practice or the soon to be re-released Pony Wars Rules, basing the units on a single base will help with movement and 6mm will give me plenty of room for rolling plains on an 8ft by 4ft table with a mass of warriors against a beleaguered command.
The US cavalry whilst having superior fire power will be encumbered by a long tail behind the firing unit, horse holders, pack mules etc, this should give the cavalry commander a real challenge on the table top.
Given the size and the need to identify the units from a far, I came a cross this plate which seemed to be the perfect way to identify the various companies.
