From SanderS - Serbelloni anyone? (72 Points)

Hoi,

For my second contribution I chose a unit of Austrian Cuirassiers from the 7YW. Well tell a lie really, because originally these figures started as Napoleonic Russian Cuirassiers from Zvezda. But since I do not collect Russian Napoleonics and do need some more hard hitting Austrian cavalry for my 7YW army I decided to cheat a little and swap some heads. The paint scheme is loosely based on the Serbelloni Cuirassiers and I kinda like how they turned out.


Now on to some Napoleonics.

Cheers Sander

Ah, it's great to see some tricorne-era troops being submitted to the Challenge. Lovely stuff Sander and a great conversion from their Russian origins.  I really like the rich detail on your saddle blankets and the pistol holsters - very nice.
These eight converted cavalry will give you 72 Points
