The Cavalry are from Qualiticast´s Zulu War range...I bought these a few years ago and decided to work on the Sudan Campaign rather than the Zulu War.
I wanted some cavalry to support the Desert Column, so I converted them to represent the 18th hussars. I know they are not supposed to have pennons...but they look so much better with them. I made them from toothpaste tubes...the metal is great for making flags and pennons etc.
The Officer is converted using an arm from an infantry officer.
I am waiting for Hat to finally produce their Zulu War Lancers so I can add a new Troop.
