28mm Old West US Cavalry (on foot). These are Old Glory castings. Yep, they are fantastic. They are perfect for skirmish, having lots of animation. I am not sure about the check shirts. I've yet to see one from the Old West, I just understood, from other gamers, that they were prevalent. They were also fond of fireman's shirts.These figures are painted to Museum standard, i.e. they are highlighted, but are gloss varnished. I don't normally do this. But I had a hankering to do so in this case.
