US 7th Cavalry Mounted
Lots of figures getting based up recently, the first being of the mounted variety. This group is the US 7th cavalry from Artizan.
I completely forgot to do a year in review and goals for 2019 post but getting mounted figures completed was definitely on the top of any and all 'to do' lists I had.
The nice thing is I think these can be used in several types of skirmish games.
I'm sure they will see action in Dead Man's Hand and Gunfighter's Ball, in scenarios very Hollywood-esque along the lines of the John Ford cavalry film trilogy.
To even something like Peckinpah's Major Dundee could be really fun, as this guy almost has the exact face of James Coburn's character Sam Potts - of course the outfit is all wrong, but still, pretty solid likeness in my eyes.
This guy wins Movember 😂
And it's always fun to get more horses completed too, as all the riders are able to be taken off their mounts so corrals can be fully stocked.
Next up are some mounted robbers - it's been so long since I purchased these guys (big surprise right) and I can't for the life of me remember who the manufacturer is, though I'm leaning towards Artizan again.
A little variety with this group weapons wise as opposed to the cavalry, with this robber brandishing a rifle.
And a shotgun.
This guys hat makes me think he's probably from Kansas, and a former member of the outlaw groups there, as all he needs is a feather in it - maybe that could be a fun side project.
And finally I would like to say welcome and thank you to new follower of the blog Esben Christiansen, really appreciate you following along 😀
As always, thanks for looking!
