Thanks a lot for coming here! It's always impressive to see how many people seem to be interested in painted little plastic fellows (and my blog is one of the smallest ones).
Well - today I'm going to show you the first results of my Westphalian cavalry conversion project.
I took the fabulous Strelets French cuirassiers, carve off the horsehair decoration on their helmet crests and replaced them with self-made caterpillars. Just like that.
The Kingdom of Westphalia fielded three cuirassier regiments which belonged to the finest European heavy cavalry of their time. They were all nearly wiped out in Napoleons' terrible campaign in Russia 1812 - only a few of them survived.
Same will happen with this guy:
In addition, I'll have to paint the 2nd regiment fellows, which wore a dress similar to the one of the 1st regiment. Their regimental colours were blue and orange.
