This blog page is dedicated to my first wargaming love which is the English Civil War. Here I will discuss my ongoing mission to paint my own ECW army and making terrain, buildings and rules. In fact all things ECW will appear here.
Warlord Games ECW horses are a really great set of plastic horsesand these horses are each made up of 2 separate parts giving a total of 9 variants from three horses (I know there are 4 horses on the sprue, but two are the same), and it looks like this.
If you take a very knife and cut each horse half in two just behind the saddle strap to make each horse four separate parts it makes a total of 81 variants from three horses, and it looks like this.
Once you start to glue them back together in a variety of new poses they look like this.
When the riders are added the cut lines are hidden and they look like this.
All in all a very simple and effective way of adding extra variety to the horses.
