Here, in Mr B's trademark style, are two custom-built units of converted Hinton Hunt figures. One is simply a Creeping Elegance project, to replace another unit of the same name, which I was never really happy with - so here is the new version of the Husares Españoles...
|Heavily converted HH figures - French mirliton hussar, hacked about, plume moved |
to left side - not quite sure what the provenance of the horses is - if you're an HH enthusiast,
please spot the donor castings
|I'll attempt a team photo of all the Spanish light cavalry for 1809 - that's |
6 units of converted Hintons
|Something a little different - straight from the pages of Jose Maria Bueno|
|They're nice, aren't they? Complete with stripey blankets - businesslike.|
And that is the Spanish light cavalry complete, except....
Well, except that it would be a shame to waste the older version of the hussars, so I may repaint them and re-recruit them as the Husares de San Narciso - not sure about this. Beyond current planning, anyway.
There are now just 4 units of heavy (well, heavier) cavalry still to be painted for the 1809 Spanish army. - 1 of dragoons and 3 of line cavalry. They are in the new, all-singing, all-dancing plan for 2018.
