From DaveD - 10mm Kettledrummer conversions (4 points)

I forgot I had completed these a few weeks ago and had not photographed them. So here is a very small entry. These are two Napoleonic kettle drummers for my friend Gerrys mad collection (The Situation Room blog). He asked to could i do some conversion work involving swapping the heads from the cast version which has mamaluke type headress ,  to make some specific ones for a Dragoon and Grenadier a Cheval one. So armed with the magnifying light , minidrill and a small soldering iron i was able to swap out the heads and paint them up. They are now ready to add to his 40,000+ figure collection...everytime I think I am mad ... I know that I know someone who has it worse!


 They are 10mm Pendraken Miniatures


work has started on the new man cave - off to do more clearance work!

MilesR - A very nice submission - any chance for some pictures of the new man cave as it comes together?  The posts about your Sudanese game was inspiring.

  3. Ah, wonderful kettledrummers Dave AND converted in 10mm no less! Absolutely fantastic. They remind me of a marvelous French cuirassier band that I have nestled in my display cabinet... :)
