From DaveD: 28mm Wild West U.S. Cavalry - D Troop (55 points)


From Dave:
Another Old West related submission. This time we have the U.S. Cavalry - D Troop. These are a new range of 28mm Old West figures by Galloping Major in the UK. Initially just the dismounted contingent. 
Not super detailed sculpts  -  but I think they have a certain character to them - it also means they are quick to paint. I completed one of these before the challenge as a test piece so its 11 of them altogether.


Now I must start and get my revision books out for an exam later in January, and also sort out some non Old West entries for later in the month.

Wonderful stuff Dave. They look to be nice clean sculpts and their uniformity is almost shocking when set against the rest of this project. 

These 11 troopers will give Dave 55 points. Well done and good luck with your exams!
