The Anglo-allied forces for the Hundred Days were coming along nicely, but I'd not done any cavalry for them so it was about time that I cracked on.
For the first units I purchased a pack of Perry Miniatures British Light Dragoons 1808-15 plus an extra British Light Dragoon Command so that I could make two units of eight for my initial force.
Like all cavalry, they are a faff to paint, with far too much going on with them to make it truly enjoyable.
There also seems to be a lot less variety in this set, you seem to be building the same rider over and over again. Likely that is because the frame contains parts to make both the pre-1812 and post-1812 cavalryman and as there are no common parts that leaves little scope for anything but the choice of shouldered sword or charging sword.
I've also modelled the second unit; currently on my painting desk, with the shouldered sword, but if I get another box will do the third unit at the charge.
The command frame allows you to build this officer and trumpeter which are both very nice figures.
A pair of troopers made from the set.
Unfortunately, every one of the troopers horses in the set I had was a miscast, the left hand side of the horse is incompletely formed around the blanket roll, as my eyesight is so poor and I don't use my magnifier when building, only when painting, I did not notice this until far too late!
I'll have to do some green-stuffing on the ones in hand to fix this up.
Update:That area on the left hand blanket roll is not a miscast, you should be putting the carbine there, despite what the instructions on the box show.
Not my favourite of the Perry Miniatures sets but serviceable and I'll have to pinch my nose and paint another couple of units to complete my cavalry brigade.
