In our Stoke Field game I fielded some dismounted cavalry from 2 different manufacturers and just finished painting some from a third. Dismounted cavalry were sometimes used to assault defended positions and, when required, to defend a strong point as well.
For the Stoke Lane game I painted up some Old Glory (OG)figures...
... as well as some Warlord Games (WG) figures from the Storming Party with Petard Team pack:
True to form, the WG figures were finished just a few days before the game and never made it onto the table, as they were trapped in their lodgings and captured.😒
Just this weekend I finished some Wargames Foundry (WF) minis from the Dismounted Cavalry with Carbines pack and the Officers and Characters pack:
Height-wise the three companies' figures match up pretty well although style-wise they are fairly different; left to right, WF, WG, OG:
The WG figures are more slender and better proportioned, and the detail is crisper as you would expect from a "modern" casting. Both the WF and OG figures are stockier have rather large noggins and hands with the sculpting of the OG figures being particularly dated. The OG figures come with separate right arms but they were in rather poor shape so I used arms from the WG plastic Harquebusier set. Despite the fine detail and great casting of the WG figures, I think I enjoyed painting the WF figures the most; there is almost too much to paint on the WG minis, an issue I had with the metal dragoons as well. Although that may come across as a criticism, its more of a personal preference and they are still very nice figures.
