"Keep those cattle moving .Rawhide!"

Yes more 15mm western stuff. Firstly a big than you to Peter who gave me a LOAD of 15mm  Western stuff on Sunday. It is  Very much appreciated.

Secondly Here is my 2nd Cavalry unit. Again these are Table top Games figures now available from (LINK ) Alternative Armies. As there are only 11 figures this unit shall be expanded in the near future. Just have to get an order together soon.

While at present they do have a command officer they do not have a bugler or a flag and that is something I am Keen to rectify. They are the maximum size for a veteran unit so 2 additional stands wil be enough to make them the maximum size for an average unit.


Again I have gone for 10th Cavalry or if you prefer "Buffalo Soldiers!" this keeps them in continuity with other figures already painted.

 But it does not stop there. I have also painted up 6 stands of Texas Long Horn Cattle. I strongly believe these are Minifigs from back in the day, many centuries ago.

This should (fingers crossed) represent partial cover squares, or at least the indicators for those squares. . I have been mad aware that they are still in production. needless to say these will work better for "Cattlmen" than US army, but for now at least that is another thing crossed off the list

Thanks for looking today I shall try to post again tomorrow as I have a Burps AAR to report on.


Until  then all the best Cint

    1. Thank you Dave a CLASSIC western song! You will not be the only person that sings it to me when they see these. And I reckon "Meats back on the menu!" Will also be uttered.

    1. Thank you Joe. I suspect I bought all I could afford at that age when it comes to Cattle. I may get some more soon though.
