|IR.10 The components.|
Anyway, I have collected the metal components for a group photo. They comprise 20 Crusader French Fusiliers (selected at random from miscasts - part of the compensation I obtained from Northstar) The Command Group will feature a standard bearer (converted from a Crusader French NCO) a Drummer from Foundry (via Dave T's bargain box) and "von Klingenbach" himself. He is a part-finished conversion of a Dixons Chasseur and will sport an animal skin cape in the style of von Zieten. His head is from a Foundry cavalry bugler and his horse will be from Front Rank (I think I photographed him on a Crusader nag by mistake)

Bases will be purchased from Warbases who provide laser-cut MDF in a wide range of sizes at ridiculously low prices - £2.00 gets you 16 40x40mm bases! The standard will be custom printed on silk by Maverick Models and will apparently cost no more than £2.00.
All things considered once the work is done this should be a very cost-effective, unique and attractive Regiment.
Now that I have my miniatures the floodgates are truly open and my enthusiasm has returned! I hope my very rusty painting skills can do justice to my idea...
