A long time between drinks!
Work and family has occupied most of my time lately, and now I have study to add to the list!
Here's the latest (and possibly last?) entry for the challenge; Napoleonic Italian horse artillery for the Borodino IV Corps project I'm working on for our 2014 big January game.
The figures are a head-swap conversion using the bodies of Italeri horse gunners and the heads from Zvezda light infantry.
The Italeri gunners are a little too grand with their colpacks, so I traded them for shakos with plumes and cords. Still a bit fancy, but more to my preference!
Great to hear from you again, Ben! Lovely stuff this. It's quite interesting, this year's Challenge has seen quite a few Italian-themed Napoleonics, which has been a great diversion from the regular fare. Also, very nice work with the head swaps. In regards to their fanciness, you do have to remember they are Italians - they have appearances to keep up!
This battery and its accoutrements will give Ben 18 points. Well done!
