Dismounted Horse (2) - 'Mounted Conversions'

I'm planning to have two regiments of horse dismountable for various scenarios. A regiment of 9 would dismount as one man on horse back, one man dismounted holding a horse, plus one officer and 6 troopers on foot.

I had two extra dragoon riders left and used these with some horses I cast from a SYW mould of a walking horse. The horses required changes to the saddle cloth and addition of pistol holsters. The riders had the front detail removed and filled up to make it more breastplate like, then I added cross belts, new heads and finally gave them a pistol and carbine to hold.

The finished conversions ... The two extra horses are for the dismounted horse holders which I've yet to convert. A side view of the mounted figures...
These can be used for my dismounted horse or for scouts, double whammy !!


  1. Nice conversion work! I'm sure they'll look excellent when all painted up!

  2. I'm always impressed by the conversions which people make . . . I fear that I'm too timid to try much myself.

  3. Very nice conversions...that green stuff is "the bomb"!!

    I just used it this afternoon on some civilian conversions...
