And for the really obsessive skirmish gamer, you could try to do three or four versions of the same model:

1.) charging mounted with a lance
2.) fighting mounted with a sword
3.) fighting dismounted with a sword
4.) fighting dismounted with a shortened lance

You forgot that using all three sets you can also make a matching gambesoned soldier who is

5. Riding with longbow slung behind back
6. Dismounted with longbow slung behind back
7. Dismounted shooting longbow.

Then there's another one, probably not very realistic:

8. Riding and shooting longbow

I don't think there is room for both a longbow and a gambeson up there...

I have a feeling that converting a gambesoned plastic soldier into a casualty might be a bit more involved than the builds that I suggested.

That said, I have seen some of the Perry WotR plastics into casualties, so it can probably be done for the plastics - though for a more convenient option Perrys have a couple of packs of metal casualties available (no horses, though).

I made a plastic casualty years ago when the first Perry WOTR set came out, by cutting the figure off its base, glueing the head and arms on, then hitting it with a hammer to flatten it. Then making good the result. Worked pretty well  :)

That's some really subtle conversion technique, that is!

I presumed that in the end the soldier in question looked rather hammered?

None of them look too bright do they? ;)









I think it was the top one I bashed with a hammer...  ::)
