Elite Miniatures French Line Chasseur a Cheval Converted to the 1st Virginian Cavalry Regiment

The Master of conversions Victory Perry (of Adventure Miniatures) has just finished converting two Elite Miniatures French Napoleonic Line Chasseur a Cheval into these great looking 1st Virginian Confederate cavalry. Victor came around the other day, whilst I was casting up an order, with a great idea to convert a few figures. So I put together the figures he needed and three days later...two ACW confederate cavalry figures converted and painted....bloody fantastic and very clever.

Looking good mate but aren't they the Chasseur a Cheval figure not the Hussar one? Please tell Victor I got the 100 horses. Cheers Scott

Those are very nice. It would be great to see a picture of the green-stuff work. It looks like lots of work around the saddle.
