Test paint - Hanoverian Landwehr.
While I'm waiting for my French Hussars to arrive I thought I would try a simple conversion that I saw on the 'KippersMinis' blog (link at right, see March 2010 for the Hanoverian unit and a Dutch unit conversion)). Lots of good stuff on there and some nice conversions to Dutch & Belgian troops plus a unit of Hanoverian Landwehr, of which there were several at Waterloo in Halkett's 3rd Hanoverian Brigade. Perry plastics of course with the shako cut down, cleaned up and the cap top added from blue-tac. I'm not sure that mine have not turned out a little 'loaf' like, although they look much better in 28mm scale than blown up in the photograph I have to say! Anyway, I'm very pleased with them and will do a full battalion in the future no doubt.
