Pony Wars: Company A, 2nd US Cavalry

As stated in my A Cunning Plan (or two...) for 2021!, one cunning plan was to build up some forces for the forthcoming reissue of Pony Wars (or B Troop Ain't Coming Back) which is due out sometime soon. It does require rather a lot of miniatures (600 mounted Indians IIRC) so I'm working on scaling the game back 50% and doing it in 10mm...

Lancashire Games have a fledgling Pony Wars range so I ordered some US Cavalry from them and painted up my first company.

Despite the small scale I am happy with the end result of my painting efforts, though I have baulked at painting the lettering on the guidon!

Next up on the painting table will be some Indians (ordered from Irregular - they are lovely) or some Army wagons to go with the cavalry...

Of course the project necessitated re-watching John Ford's Cavalry Trilogy so inspired by the first and third films, my cavalry regiment in Pony Wars will be the 2nd US Cavalry commanded by Lieutenant Colonel Kirby Yorke... 


  1. Utterly fantastic work on the tiny figures! You've got me tempted to pick some up now!

  2. Nice... What am I saying, super lovely to see. I tried to get my act together to do Pony Wars the first time round as I enjoyed the demo games. But, realistically I'm never going to get my act together for another project. I have my real robo mecha project to complete. #RealRobo is the way.

    1. I saw a post the other day on FB were someone used the rules for a Starship Troopers game so maybe... ;-)

  3. Classic movies! Are the figures 10mm? Nice job.
