Forgot The Italians!

In listing who was doing what I forgot that, when I realised the French might actually end up outnumbered, I decided to do some... but not French as such, rather their Italian allies, who were at Leipzig.
They come from Italeri Early French, a very useful set. The grenadier officer is just a simple head swap. The pioneer will get an axe, of course.


  1. Very nice. I am going to convert some of these Italeri figures into Old Guard. I am not too fond of the Airfix poses.

  2. When I first saw the Italeri officer I thought he looked very much like the second Airfix officer with a bicorne substituted for the bearskin. It is intriguing to see the airfix officer "recreated" by conversion.
