Those four chaps again -- WIP

I've been doing some conversions on my stock of spare castings to make up a couple of new sets of four musketeers figures - one armed with muskets and the other horseback; 

the basic non-action set...
 the new set armed with muskets
 and on horseback
the two new sets will be on normal style rather than clear bases - as they will be used mostly in skirmish style games in association with other figures.

A little bit of figure tweaking ....

I've been working on some 40mm pirate figures I picked up off Ebay; three were OK with a minor retouch and were put straight onto plastic clear bases - the rest have been tweaked slightly. These chaps will crew a small ship I have and will also be useful to use as civilians.
 I put two of the same pose aside to use to make a 'female blade' for my musketeer games; these two have been suitably reworked ....

Trouble at the crossroads ...

continued from the previous post ...

the Traveller was moved out of the town of Ingelwitz by the shortest route possible...
 a man who spotted the Traveller meets with an unsavoury character at the edge of town ...
 all going well on their way to the crossroads...
 some men block their way and a couple more come out of the trees on their right - 'looks like trouble ahead' says von Messing and they draw their swords...
blades clash ....
von Messing has his opponent at his back foot, the others hold their ground - they try and keep the traveller in the middle out of harms way ....
von Messing's opponent falls back wounded, another man steps in; Scharfe dispatches his opponent and Hofler gets a wound;
 the traveller is moved up by the barn by Fischer; while the rest fight on ...
 von Messing and Scharfe dispatch their opponents, while Hofler inflicts a wound on his opponent...
Scharfe comes to the aid of Hofler while von Messing deals with the last man in his way ....
 access to the road is secured ...
 Scharfe's opponent has had enough and runs off ....
 safely onto the road and not far from the Inn...
 they arrive at the Inn and the Traveller gets into the coach ...
they are soon off on their way to Ottenheim ....

[ the first outing for my new musketeer chaps; I wrote up a simple combat scheme and tried it out for this game, needs a little refinement but it worked well]
