    What are your experiences with removing the supports under moving cavalry legs?

    Yeah, probably poorly worded. You know how a lot of cavalry (Bretonnia in my case at the moment) have supports that connect their hooves to the slot section that fits into the base?

    Well what are your experiences with removing that for anyone that has? I can't stand the look of them and want to remove them.

    I've not done it in years, but in my experience is resulted in still attached but a bit... springy models

    Agreed.

    It works perfectly well, but it makes for very little support for a pretty good sized model, so you'll need to be careful about handling and storing them to avoid damage.

    suggest pinning them to the base if you remove the support, will cut down on the "springy" feel to them

    I tend to remove the long supports only, the shorter ones I cover up behind soem static gras as a sort of clump gras effect whch looks ok, gives a bit of movement to the model as well.

    You mean the grassy plastic bits modelled on to the horse legs, to attach them to the slot? Yeah, I remove those all the time. I think they look really silly and I can't say I have noticed them being more prone to breaking or more unstable.
