My French army has been destitute of cavalry for far too long. My British collection could muster six regiments, but games rarely used five, and typically one or two. One unit was not my favourite, some plastic Blues & Royals. These figures were not bad, but lacked reins, and could not match the pleasure of using my metal alternatives. Decided to have a go at converting them.
Here are my two French cuirassier regiments, and a brigade commander. The original five plastic figures were supplemented with three lead castings from Paul Watson, and one more in my spares box. With odd metal bits from various suppliers, this project was hardly cheap. All told, the figures and spares must have totalled about £24. Still, they will be much more useful in my wargames.
