Warlord Games Household Cavalry

I painted up a box of the Warlord Games Household cavalry over the weekend. These are very similar to the heavy dragoons, the difference being you only get the helmeted heads in this box. Helmets come with and without plumes. The assemble easily and you can get a nice variety of poses using the different arm options available. A note of caution, be careful how you position some of the arm poses to make sure they will fit on the horse when you get to that point. On some of the options, if you position the arm too low you will have problems getting it to sit correctly on the horse. I learned this the hard way.

Overall, I think it was a good value.  It is nice to have another option for my British cavalry.
