My idea of sticking to the boxart as a colour reference failed, mainly due to the bods and nags looking nothing like the ones portrayed on the boxart. After a lot of digging about on the web for a suitable colour scheme, I more or less gave up and painted them using a couple of Basic reference Points. I mean, which period are These lot supposed to portray? The "war" against the Native americans??, ACW??
PSR gives them a 3 out of 10 for historical accuracy...IMHO, a bit over generous.
Added to the lack of a fixed period, loads of bits are missing or just plain odd and no matter how hard You try, you just can´t paint up a bandolier to look like White braces or make non existant revolvers, saddlebags, neckerchiefs etc hold paint.

|Command. The B/W saddle rolls are after an example found on the web|
What will happen to this lot? Even though the nags are missing a lot of their tack, they still aren´t as bad as some examples so they will get used in a future Project. The bods? Back into the box of obscurity.
