    Working on this conversion at the moment.
    Its a collection of bits and pieces from the MM spares box .
    The horse has been altered a fair bit with a different head attached raised and slightly turned to the right also one of the front legs chopped and changed.
    The rider is slightly raised from the saddle and set turned to the right as he wheals his mount round.

    Haven't decided on which regiment yet and waiting on spares arriving from France IE arms ,tail sabretache ,bits etc.

    that will be a nice figure.
    I can't understand that some of you guys can build a complete figure out of a sparebox.
    The only things in my sparebox are bases that comes with the figure.

    definitely found your mojo with these 54mm Nap conversions Ron.
    Nice pose, full of movement without being forced.
    Have you applied the gold directly over polished white metal? If you have I'd be interested why.
    Cheers

    Cheers Del , yes right over the bare metal ' an experiment " to see if I can preserve the engraved detail better . It works ! prob is how do you prime the rest of the figure.
    Anyway I have two versions of rider for this horse and put it to the planet to say which one is best :rolleyes: :facepalm:
