    Hi Guys,

    Another conversion! This time based on the Verlinden 200mm Demi Brigade bust. This one will depict a Sergeant, Spanish Cazadores, 1813.

    All conversion work in miliput and duro, still some details to add.

    Very nice Steve. I had a go at sculpting a Tiradore a few months ago and mine looks pitifully toy-like when compared to your conversion. I can't wait to see it with some colour splashed on it (y)

    Thanks for the comments chaps! Im looking forward to doing this, but Im no Napoleonic buff, so Ive only got one pic to go off, so it will be heavily based on that! Its plate 33 in the Blandford Uniforms of the Peninsular War, 1807 - 14 and he has a sky blue uniform, Roger, sorry!!:(

    Steve, Cool idea of converting the Demi-Brigade to a Spanish Spanish Cazadores! Should be a colorful uniform indeed! Recall the Cazadores from Bernard Cornwall's Sharpe's Rifles title and character Blas Vivar... One of my favorite Sharpe titles! If you have not read this title, read it. It may inspire you in your conversion!

    Thanks for sharing your in progress conversion!(y)
