Anyone who collects 1/72 Napoleonic miniatures knows that British and Portuguese staff figures are hard to come by.
Eager to try my hand at creating a figure for Wellington, I committed the greatest heresy possible and decided to use a mounted Napoleon figure from the Italeri French command set as my starting point! I went on to convert some other figures to generic British generals as well.

You can see the whole process here at my blog:

Oh my word Bill. I know your work is good, but these are lovely.

Great result, that I can feel the urge to copy

Thanks, all. I should have mentioned here that the last two aren't conversions, but the two Portuguese officers from Hagen Miniatures that I left intact.

Yup. Been browsing your blog. Left a message re HaT Brits if you're interested. Marc

Hmmm, didn't see that message. Always interested in Hat Brits, especially if they are Peninsular and when exactly I might be able to get some!!
