With a Hint of Wild Gallic


Here's the Minifigs S range Gaul "lancer" mounted on what maybe one of the little Napoleonic cossack ponies. The S range series used bare-backed horses with the saddlery attached to the riders. The idea was that you could save money on horses by swapping the riders around. The number of cavalry figures I have bought over the years that had plasticene stuck between their thighs suggests that many gamers adopted this cost-cutting approach.

  1. Nice model and thankfully not on the often seen oversized warhorses..
    The idea with horses without furniture is good but it is sometimes a bit fiddly to attach the models to the horses with the saddlecloth fitting
