Perry French Hussars - WIP
Finally got around to start on these puppies. Horses up first. Besides a command sprue of two horses - one for the officer and the other the bulger, I presume - there are four identical sprues of three horse figures - each in two halves. So, you could build nine "unique" variants and duplicate three of them - which is what I did. Funny how I stink at math, but managed to figure this out.
This is one of those sprues of three horses. The sprues also come with three carbines - so make sure you don't chuck them after removing the horse parts. I used a wire cutter to remove the parts but, a slender-nosed sniper would be better. I just go with what I have sometimes. The plastic the Perrys use is much tougher than the type Victrix uses.
These are the two from the command sprue. Note the officer's horse blanket - as opposed to the sheepskins on the rank & file types.
Here are the horses mounted to the bases - I used Testors liquid cement to glue them to the bases; the same glue was used for putting the horse halves together. This is better than super-glue for plastics, IMO.
