Missing Naps and 19th century colonials
30th Apr 2015 01:15:37

French infantry in colpacks or Nassau Grenadiers (same thing in 6mm) for Naps. Swedes in 6mm for 1813?

I could also be tempted by Indian mutiny/ Sikh wars British and Indian troops. Colonials for 1840-60..

Indian Mutiny/ Sikh wars and Colonials would be good, and Crimean War too!

For "Naps. Swedes in 6mm for 1813" you can probably get away with using proxies like...

  • Russian Line Infantry (most started using the Russian kiwer, a few used the French shako and almost none retained the older style traditional Swedish round hat despite it still being regulation)
  • Spanish Hussars (in mirleton)
  • French Line Artillery (in shako)

Luckily you don't want to do the war against Russia in 1808/9, because then you would need all the infantry and artillery in round hats!

Resurecting a thread here but would agree with all of the suggestions above re colonials from Nick and Matt plus the addition of Naval landing brigade, i have some acw skirmishers i am going to try and convert, as whilst H&R do this i fear the scale difference will make them look worse than my attempts at conversion.
