Horse Firing pistols (conversions)

I had a dig around in my ECW boxes and found that I had three figures holding pistols/muskets on horse (from previous conversions), plus a spare officer and trumpeter - all painted up. With the cornet I made up recently I needed 3 more figs to complete the regiment (9 figs).
Firstly two Irregular Miniatures riders with S&S arms firing pistols on converted 18C horses cast from moulds.
and one firing pistol made up from 18c limber horse rider on a converted 18C Irregular Miniatures horse, with lots of spare bits and green stuff to complete.

Good stuff. I enjoy converting as much as, if not more than, painting the figures. I like the bell mouthed pistol on the firing chap. Imagine that filled with old nails and bits of horseshoe etc.

Now I want to see them painted up.

I agree with Jeff - ha ha
But seriously, it's always cool to see the conversions and how you personalize your armies. Nice work!

I enjoyed doing the conversions and I'm itching to get them painted - must make room on the paiting desk first though ...
