HaT Frontier Light Horse

They had a uniform but apparently they preffered to use civilian clobber, even on active service, the only recognisable thing showing that they belonged to the Light horse being a red band tied around thier hats. I´ve gone for a uniformed look, using the colours suggested on the HaT boxart.

3 horse poses, and 5 bod poses. The set does have a bit of flash that needs dealing with..not a lot but it´s very thin and due to the plastic being soft, it´s a paint to remove
The horses are the same as in the 17th lancer set. Most pics show the Light horse with very little equipment on the horses..even on HaT´s boxart it shows no bedroll.
Again..the bod with the revolver hasn´t got a holster...which is ok with the 17th Lancer set as the arm holding the revolver can be put on one of 3 bods..but here the arm is fixed..odd error.

  1. Very nice Paul and I dare say a lot less hassle than the lancers!

  2. Good painting work! I like what you have done with them,
    but that's sure, the last HAT's sets seem to be "quickly-made" !
    I'm interested with this set, because, maybe I could use it for Old West and it's certainly possible....

    1. Thanks. As I was painting them I thought " I wonder if Pascal would be able to do something with these?" :-D

  3. They look very good Paul! You managed very well copying the colours of the box art. Not the most common one.

  5. Nice as always, I would expect them to carry the bedroll, after all even light horse like a kip every now and again

  7. good work paul. they do look like they could have many uses. even I looked at it for a possible gaucho style modern cavalry set (with some conversion... berets)

  11. Awesome job on picking the colors, not too eccentric but very earthy
