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), 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.
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.
The figures mounted in the donkeys, are equally Esci/Italeri , only cutting and molding with mass.
The mantles had been made using Cavalry Cossack WWII of the Revell.
E the Indian the foot is conversion of figure Cossack of the Orion.
