Cavalry charge


Staying in the historical realm, but switching eras, we call in the cavalry!


Whenever I paint these guys, all I can think of are LOTR Rohan horses.  I realize the same person sculpted both, but I keep expecting to see Eomer riding one of them!


It wouldn't take much to convert the saddles and make them work for LOTR...


These would also make excellent horses for my Khandish chariots!!


Form up!


CHARGE!


There will be some much bigger group shots soon.


So many, that it will require the big backdrop.


Stay tuned!
