Not really, no. I hate painting horses, and need a lot of help from the figure. I am pondering buying some essex cavalry and binning the riders – Essex horses almost paint themselves. I hit the same issue with the Peter Pig ones I bought to be my Pseudo Goth Cavalry – in the end I bought far fewer than originally planned, mounted them all on spare essex horses, bought half a dozen packs of Essex Germanic Cavalry to mix in, and the few PP that are one-piece just had to blend in.
This is not, I may keen to say, an issue with quality – they are just not my sort of horse 🙂
They do have one issue that I do blame the manufacturer for – my bases are 20mm deep. that’s almost a universal base depth for 15mm so I am not alone in this. How do you find your Khurasan horses fit on the bases?
I just sat one of them on an Essex horse and the fit seemed OK. I think it might work best with the horse from the Macedonian Companion cavalry pack. The figures legs look long on the walking Essex horse-which is probably historically correct but doesn’t look as lively.
I have no problem basing the Khurasan stuff, Pulse of Battle suggests 30 wide x 40 deep bases. Cheaper cavalry units too 8 figures versus 12!
