Hi friends.

These are conversions of enemy warriors of the colonial troops.
I wait that they appreciate the ideas. ;-)

Hi friends.

Many thanks for the compliments .
I will go to try to answer the questions explaining as I made the conversions :

Perhaps influenced for I to be equally of a country that also was colonized (Brazil), :lol: :lol: :lol: the initial idea was to transform commander Dervish of the Waterloo, giving a mantle, flag and a great horse, being seemed to the painting of some pictures of generals. :oops: :oops: :lol: :lol:

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

The majority of the other figures, from above part of the body is Muslim of the Esci and the part of low is copy in white metal of the figure base.

Image

The figures mounted in the donkeys, are equally Esci/Italeri , only cutting and molding with mass.

Image

The mantles had been made using Cavalry Cossack WWII of the Revell.

Image

E the Indian the foot is conversion of figure Cossack of the Orion.

Image


Pardon for my very poor English language. :oops: :oops:

Best regards. :thumbup:

Jaques, you are genius when it comes to conversions (and painting I might add). I love the mounted riflemen. Well done.
