Just thought I'd put up a couple of images of a Napoleonic conversion. I have been messing about with the blog a bit because I have injured my thumb and cannot do much painting at the moment.
Here he is:
Wurttemberg King's Chasseur
This particular figure is a conversion from Revell 1/72 British Guard Cavalry. Firstly it is a paint conversion, but I have also replaced the rear blanket roll with a miliput one and constructed a saddle cloth of the appropriate shape from paper. Here is another shot:
My point of reference was an illustration from Histoire et Collections lovely full-colour hardback on the battle of Borodino. These other pictures are a paint only conversion. They are from the Zvezda French Light Infantry set and have been painted as Italian light infantry.
These are really beautiful sculpts with so much excellent detail. I have metal and plastic figures in my collection but I have to admit that plastics such as these are far superior in terms of detail when compared to many metal ranges.
Whilst I am prevented from painting I will try and keep my camera busy.......
