Dragoon horse holder vignettes

Each regiment of dragoons is to have a horse holder vignette, so with two regiments for each side I needed four. Each vignette stand to consist of 3 horses and a horseholder.

I had to rummage around to find enough horses and had to convert a fair number of SYW ones I had spare; reigns were remove from the horses and lots of green stuff used to make good and add extra saddle furniture added...
 After painting up all the figures I set about basing them. I decided to inset the figures into the base, so marked out positions on one piece of card...
 cut out the holes out and then stuck that onto another piece of card
 then stuck the figures into position
 added the reigns using thin strips of black insulation tape
 Then filled gaps in the bases, painted etc - the completed items....


  1. Beautiful stands, nicely done!

  2. Very nicely done. Adds a lot of character to your tabletop.
