British Horse


 Here is a unit of mounted British, in East Indies Company uniform.


There were small  numbers of British mounted troops in service - essentially two troops of mounted infantry in their issue uniforms.

Officer soon to experience heat stroke...

Figures are from Foundry's SYW British range. They are, in my opinion, okay, but not the most exciting figures... There were issues ensuring that the riders sat upon the horses correctly.

  1. Another nice paintjob. How or where did you get the flowers on the bases, they add a great touch to the basing?
