These are some 25mm Ottoman cavalry figures that I just completed. The figures are made by Essex. I replaced the spears with some that I made out of brass. The nice thing about these figures was there was quite a bit of room and open space to paint some designs.
There were a few things I didn't care for with these figures. The metal used in these figures was soft and deformed quite easily. It may have just been a case of the figures being an older cast that used more lead in the alloy. The second thing was that the riders were too small to mount on the horses. I had to get in a spread the legs of the riders apart . As it was, I forgot to check the fit before painting so I had to nervously bend metal after the paint was complete. Not fun but it taught me a lesson. Always learn.
Enjoy the pictures.
