Bits 'n' Bobs



I didn't manage to post these before the big game, but the eagle-eyed among you may already have spotted these from the previous post. 

Up to now, I haven't had a British army command stand, only a divisional one, so I needed to make one before the display game. The general comes from the Revell British infantry set, with a head swap using the HaT infantry command head, the colonel is from the HaT command set with a shako head instead of the bicorne, and the staff galloper is a hussar from the Italeri light dragoon set. The horses from the light dragoons have no shabraques, so I made a sheepskin shabraque using Milliput. I also added cotton thread reins glued to the hand from which the pistol had been cut.


 




The object of the game was a baggage train and the only cart I had was a civilian one, so I snapped up the Italeri baggage cart when I saw it in the shops. The road on the base is the same as that I made for my terrain collection.



Also, I recently painted up another 9-figure battalion of infanterie légère using HaT light infantry figures, including a head conversion of the officer using a Franznap metal conversion head. The plume is slightly shorter, but I'm not fussed.

I only have 3 light infantry battalions, so with divisions of 4 brigades, I'm short one légère battalion. Just for the sake of balance I've created this bunch, but too late to feature in the big game.
