Well, sometimes you have to don’t you? This chap isn’t actually blowing his trumpet but has it slung across his back leaving his sword arm free to engage the French.
I’m really pleased with how this conversion of PN.77 Prussian Cuirassier (mounted) charging came out. It took me a ridiculously long time to achieve the result you see here mainly because creating the tiny trumpet was a right faff! I think it was worth it though for a unique figure saved the indignity of losing his sword in the conversion process.
Now I need to turn my attention away from such diversions and back to a bit of mass production if I’m going to produce my fair share of recruits for Vintage Leipzig.
