TYW Rebasing - Imperial Croats

I was undecided whether to rebase these or not as they are very simplistic conversions of Airfix British Hussars on Italeri horses. in the end I decided to do it, but they still look a bit strange to me.

There now a number of better options available including the Stradiots that I recently painted. I'm sure that sooner or later Mars will produce a set.

They look fine to me - suitably furry.

I reckon these chappies look pretty OK as Croats, Will. What I chose for my small contingent of Croats were HaT Napoleonic Mamelukes, which looked pretty close to the depiction of mount Croats I had seen. In hardish plastic, they painted up really nicely, too. A small 20-25mm scale they went tolerably well with my Revell 30YW figures.

I think they look rather splendid.

I like them. Moving away from the Airfix horses makes their origin less obvious.
