Dervish Cavalry Are Coming


AIP Mounted Dervish Cavalry 



On a whim, I bought one box of Armies In Plastic 54mm mounted Dervish warriors just to see what they looked like. The horses struck me as being overly large, but why not give them a try.

The box contains five poses, of which two are carrying rifles (one firing and one holding gun) and three have wicker shields and melee weapons. The mounted firing poses is in the "useless or silly pose" category, but the rest of the poses look nice.



I painted two of the figures yesterday and was really pleased how they looked painted. I bought four more boxes today as a result. The horses, while big, look very elegant and graceful and they were a joy to paint.

    1. The Dervish do seem to be flying off of my brushes.

    1. Me too! There's nothing like mass on the table top. 24-30 figures will look nifty.

  3. That would be a terrifying sight! A whole unit would be a wonderful addition.

  4. Elegant. Cavalry is my favorite to command in games other than than early WWII clunky and fast tanks.
    Well done Jim,

    1. Bill, you should paint a unit of Hussars. I have two that I don't need that I will give to you.
