TYW Cavalry

OK, so after two years I've finally given in to having a section of the FORUM specifically set up to discuss painting techniques, display examples, show your latest projects and chat about this vital part of the hobby. Manufacturers please feel free to post up your sculpts, ask questions about what the gamers are after and generally promote your work.. no charge! Painters, please also feel free to post up your work for comment and critique. I can't promise the unreserved adulation characteristic of some other fora but I would hope you'd get constructive and measured comment!

Oh! Those are very nice! :o
Are you go to extend them into a little Army one day? An Imperial may be?

For which Rules did you base them?
„Macht Euch Euren Dregg alleene“

"Sort your filth out by yourself!" The King of Saxony Friedrich August III., at his abdication 1918, referred to the quarrels in the parliament and the squabbling within the provisional government.

I hope they'll be an army one day, or at least a decent sized Bavarian corps.

I haven't foggiest what rules to use, none seem to capture the period that well.
What do you recomend.

No Idea either. Sorry. Those Saxons I started need also a good quality Rule Set. I search for one that is not too simplistic in its making.
It should cover in depth details but let me move and handle close combat fast.
I thought of trying to tweak WOTK or BlB a bit. Might be impossible but we' ll see.

Very nice unit Gunfreak! Avanpost miniatures I see, great sculpts, maybe the horses are smaller than other manufacturers, but anyway, I hope they make more sculpts for cavalry soon.

Cheers

Just a side Note for the "blackened armor": Only in the early stages of the TYW such armor was common.
Mostly for Live-Guard Squadrons. Blackened Armor was too expensive to be used in greater numbers so most units, Foot and Horse, had only polished Iron Body Armor. Besides of Commanders, Officers and some NCO's of Course.
