Hesse Kessel Cavalry
I thought the uniform was superb so I had to have some of these.
I used the French FPW Hussar as the body with the head of the CW Russian light cavalry figure. I filed down one side of the cap to make a 'slope' then added 'green stuff' to make the drouping cap and a blanket roll. Since I only needed 6 figures I made each conversion separately hence the slight variations. Can't paint as well as I used to as I have a bit of a problem with my eyes at the moment. Hopefully the hospital can fix things! They pass the distance test - well at least to my dodgy eyes they do.
Whilst I was at it and to finish the Hessel kessel contingent I add a couple of artillerymen by putting the Russian CW helmets on the bodies of a Wurttemberg artillery figures.
