The Colonial Command want Liddon to act as a scout for the army using his mapping skills and his new found fame with the locals. To do this he needed a horse.
I had no suitable mounted naval figures but I did have a dark ages mounted warrior.
This was going to be a pretty simple conversion, can't do hard ones.
File down the helmet, add a peak and coat using milliput.
The just paint the horse as a dun bay. I added a double barreled shotgun to give him some range, he is a swordsman so no great shot.
He is now ready to lead his men on long range missions, when they arrive from Westfalia (the figure maker not the German State).
I also found some roof tile prints so I reroofed my VBCW village which has 10 terraced houses, 2, pubs, a butchers and a church. These look much better than before. I also found out that cheap imitation Pritt is rubbish.
Only 7 sleeps to Partizan at Newark. Panzerkaput is organising a Northern Blogger meet up. Hopefully will see some of you there.
