Italeri 1/72 Confederate Cavalry

This is a bit of a blast from the past.  Like many gamers, I got my start with 1/72 plastic figures.  I agreed to paint these as part of a trade with another gamer.  The figures are all Italeri.  I was surprised at how well these 15 year old figures hold up.

  1. Very nice. I have the same set, actually. Just out of interest, how did you affix riders to horses, and at what stage of proceedings, if you can remember?

  2. Prufrock, I used superglue, and I did it before priming.

  3. Your technique certainly brings out the best in them!

  4. Very, very nice.
    I have these too, but mine are silver ;-)

    Beware of flaking...though I'm sure Scott performed all sorts of magic to prevent it.

  5. I hit them with Rustoleum plastic primer, which I have had good results from. I think that paint is staying!
