    Hello folks,
    Here is a little conversion i have done from a Hessian figure from Trident designs.
    I have been looking to find a figure to portray the same pose and uniform as the ilustration, and i found one almost with the same pose.
    The modification took very little, just add the duck foot shape epaulettes , cut the grenadier hat and build a bicorne o tricorne hat, collar and that is about it, later on i will add the belt with cartridge box.
    I also made built the caporal lace on its left arm.
