Making the 2nd Silesian Landwehr

Colin the Converter (not a monk) has been busy with the Waterloo project and has produced some great new ideas using figures and kit that is regularly overlooked, even by committed plastic figure fans

 Take the old Airfix Prussians....
 Cut off its head...
 Stick on the Hat Industrie stovepipe shako supplied with the Peninsular British Infantry by drilling out the neck with a pin vice (that you will have purchased since the last time) and attach with superglue...
 Prime the lot...
 Paint...
 ...and do a battalion of 30 or so.
I think it's very effective and slightly differs from the norm, which can be tricky for Prussians.

My thanks to His Eminence for allowing me to post this. Next up...what to do with those teeny French cannon from the Airfix French Artillery set. You'll be so amazed that your eyebrows will levitate.
