Don't Shoot the Messenger!


For my last bit of figure bashing this year I took the two remaining Perry plastic ACW cavalry figures and swapped the arms for some from my Perry plastic 8th Army bits.


This pair are a mounted militia messenger and his escort, which can also double up as generic militia cavalry. The messenger's cap is made from Greenstuff and his roll of paper from, er, a piece of rolled up of paper!


Despite being from the same manufacturer, the arms didn't actually fit very well, especially on the one raising his rifle, so a degree of filing and Greenstuffing was required. A slap of paint later (I think my watered-down Coat d'Armes shade is starting to thicken up) and there you go.


And what message does this dashing rider bring? Well, seeing as this is my final post for 2013, it's simply to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! May Santa bring you lots of shiny new toys!

A bit of a hint as to what expect on this blog next year...

  1. Nice work, JP. They look like they're making a desperate dash across the countryside to get the message through.
