The figures are multi-part hard plastic, the horses are in 2 halves with separate heads and can all be made unique by mixing left and right sides with any one of 4 different heads. The riders come in both armoured and unarmoured bodies, 12 of each, with lots of separate heads, separate right arms and a lot of weapons and shields.
Here are the 4 I chose for the British Light Cavalry.
The next 4 will be the British Shock Cavalry.
The final 4 will be the Saxon Light Cavalry.
I snapped each figure individually before I get around to the paint jobs.
I have textured the bases as I use the same undercoat colour for the figures and the bases and it also helps bind the filler together.
You can see the filler is quite grainy although it can be smoothed with a wet palette knife. I use this stuff below.
It dries overnight and is fairly tough, takes paint well and I use it for all my basing texture needs.
