Nice job, though I'm unfamiliar with uniforms from either so can't differentiate between these and how they were intended to be put together.

Nice stuff!
Made up uniform? Looks good even if it is! I guess that's what VSF is about!  :)

That's quite an interesting idea you've got there. If you're into figure conversions 1st Corps do some figures you might like in their Cape Wars range.

I use mine for VSF militia (a sort of Dad's Army).

Interesting concept and nicely painted. They would be good as militia types, or troops from some under-developed central European country  :D

Pleas keep us updated!

Thats what I'm using the Perry's stuff for as well if you look into the Millitia types of the Victorain era alot of the uniform styles harp to earlier era. or perhaps the Duchy of Grand Fenwick ? bring on the Zouaves :)

Plastics are so much easier (and cheaper if you balls it up) to convert, that this is something I'd like to try too.

I'm tempted, but have way too many things on the go now.

Having a big box full of 'VSF unopened packs' is NOT GOOD.  lol

No it's actually quite comforting. If you fall on hard times, you'll still have some wargames stuff to paint  lol

Thanks guys
not really any particular nation

The Zouves will certainly be welcome
