Uhlan Command.


In an attempt to get my painting tray cleaned off for the new year I've got the 40mm SYW Uhlans converted and painted . I tried an arm conversion on them and it didn't work so I melted them down ,recast them and resorted to cutting away the lance and modelling a trumpet for the musician and a sword for the officer - L to R original figure , officer, trumpeter .(click on photo to enlarge) . Not as dramatic as I would have liked but they will do ! .

  3. I keep meaning to look for one of those backdrops.

    Splendid command group. I was in a hurry when I boosred my lan ers ftom 3 to 9 and the poor squadron commander had to settle for a bid of gold lace. Now they're going to want a proper officer with sword, and a trumpeter!

    1. The first attempt with arm swops was a disaster, so out with the 'green stuff', Tony
