Brunswick Hussars pt2

Using the superb Mont St Jean website i felt there was sufficent justification to go with a easier conversion and use the sheepskin saddle cover with no under blanket. However this did feel like cheating so i Thought i'd do an Leib Infantry officer with under blanket.

Again this figure is a converted french husar but with a little additional green stuff this time!


  1. Very very nice. Horse looks awesome.

  2. Yes very nice - I like the holding a pistol pose - BTW is there a particular reason you didn't just go with the Perry's (metal) Brunswick Hussars?

    Incidentally I have 3 units converted from the Perry (plastic) French Hussars, the British (7th & 15th) and KGL (3rd) Hussars. It's a very flexible figure pack...


  3. Thanks for the comments.
    No real reason, i suppose i just wanted to see if i could do it, I was thinking about dutch /belgian hussars next using the French set, but it would be great to see your Brits. I was planning on a British Brigade of Hussars but i have waited for the Perry set, although i'm tired of waiting for someone to do heavy cavalry in plastic i guess i'll need to bite the bullet and do them in metal
