ACW cavalry conversion #2 Confederate cavalry

Here is a second unit of "dodgy casting" Confederate cavalry. These seem to have used the same separate carbine arms as the first set, but are also separate riders, mounted on home cast horses which are copies of a Hinton Hunt original (haven't identified what yet). These have carbines and swords cast onto them. The carbines have no barrels so I have added these with thick wire. The two figures on the left of the photo are firstly (I think) a homecast figure from US 18 artillery driver, and secondly a one piece casting figure, probably Napoleonic, as yet unidentified
