The natural option that pops into one's head is, "Hat has Prussian arty," well true, but they are very low quality being one of the first sets made by that company.
I was left with two options: convert or not. I decided to tackle the former. The first two figures you see are from the M part of Hat's MAC Prussians, the officer is from the C part, and the remaining two are from the actual artillery set.
|I added a rammer out of twisted copper wire (because un-twisted was too thin), with a shaped hot-glue sponge in top. the other fig has had both arms melted at the elbow and a plastic cylinder full of grape shot placed in his arms.|
|Un-modified Commander. I should have done something with the buttons.|
|Original fuze lighter, the shako is from one of the new MAC sets. The join is not as clean as I hoped for but it will do.|
These cavalry are by "Waterloo 1815" and are very excellent figures, I am rather proud of the result. Of course, Hussars look great no matter who the painter is!
My brigade has an attached cavalry Rgt of four squadrons. I am choosing to represent one squadron with each stand of three horses.
These are painted as the 9th Hussars which were present in the Waterloo campaign. Another unit of these are here [I know nothing about this blog, a google search for the 9th has brought it to my attention.]
|Blue on, er...light blue!|
