Here are some more plasticene conversions and some complete plasticene figures I’ve made.
First up is my attempt to have some of Marlborough’s Danish corps.
The infantry are made in China US GI’s in the “follow me” pose with toothpick guns. In support are two squadrons of dragoons.
As for the uniforms, I used an article in Military Modelling from the 90’s, but a perusal of Charles Grant’s book on the armies of the wars says the coats were all grey and only the pants and stockings were colourful. Oh well, Knotel says they were yellow. I’m completely lost on the flags, I know there should be two, but I’ve seen multiple designs, so I just made one up. Oh yes, I started on the green regiment as well.
The horse. A couple trumpeters, the yellow commander and the dragoons. Except for the commander, they are those Thai cowboys I found. Commander Yellow is an Esci Scots Grey.
Up next are a couple of Greeks. The mounted guy is Pausanias, formerly a Marx 7th cavalry trooper. Hopefully fighting Persians is more successful than the Indian confederation, but he did end up in a bad way too.
The wounded guy sitting on his shield is made entirely of plasticene and mounted on a poker chip.
