    This is a 5th Light Dragoons (Belgian) Quatre Bras - Waterloo 1815. It is a major transformation using Historex parts . There are few details i have to add before start painting

    I love working with Historex as well. This looks really good. But isn't it a pain to put all the tackle on before you paint the horse?

    Lovely job, says this fellow Historex devotee. I'm still of the opinion that Historex figures are the greatest thing since the invention of the wheel. :D

    Well done... Off to a great start on this one. Nice to see figures being done that have little or no commercial coverage.

    I really dig this uniform too

    I too like the uniform. Nice choice, and from another Historex lover, great work.

    OR, if you don't care for them, you could sell the box of Historex bits to me! ;) P.S. I'm not kidding.

    Great conversion, in my eye this rivals some of the fantastic figures pictured in the old catalouges. I too am an admitted Historex junkie. I see a photo, or read an account of something from the Napoleonic period, and run straight to the parts box. And nine times out of ten, it doesnt take too long to find something that will make a basic version of what your looking for, then the fun begins. Now seeing yours Iam going to have to make something from other than the French. Cant wait to see this painted.
