    Hello friends

    Just started this new composition, mostly with Metal Modeles parts but also Historex and good amount of scratch.

    Looks really good Paul. Is the horse from the MM Lancer Officer? I like the pose of that horse.
    I can't wait to see some colour go on this guy.

    Good luck

    That looks superb, what a great start! I love that you can't tell what pieces are commercial and what you did yourself (y) (y)

    Really beautifull! You have modified the "ADC" on horseback from the MM?

    Love it. Wouldn't mind seeing this mass produced, I'm sure it would make a lot of people happy

    When I saw this in the front page, I thought it was a commercial release. Superb work Vincent. Keep us updated please.
    The parts are, I guess: legs from the mounted hussar, chasseur or cannonier a cheval for the body, modifying the turnbacks, the same for head?:)

    Body (including legs) from the mounted ADC, head from the artilleur, horse from the Polish Lancer.
    Modifications: harness, turnbacks (to fit the "portmanteau"), ADC armband removed, "banderole" reworked (with Historex eagle and crown + copper wire), "aiguillette" reworked with copper wire "trèfle".
    Humbrol primer with airbrush (new to me and very exciting exercise).

    Splendid. Such clean conversion work. Even unpainted already a lovely figure.

    Very nice indeed (y) But surely if he's pointing he should also have a map ? :whistle:

    Will you break this down to paint it or paint it as it is? I have this terrible habit of painting the various parts and then finding that they don't quite fit, or I end up getting glue where it is not wanted. I'll be interested to see how you approach this as I have a Drawert full of MM mounted figures that I haven't started yet.
