I will look into that, thanks James and Jose, I was looking to convert an ACW officer on horse for a general as well, It might work if I use the ones with an open coat and a head swap, I will let you know how that goes. I like those ideas Jose, will we shinsengumi from you?
Yes. ;)

Shame, foundry maxamilian had ideal French lancer, but seem to have gone as a range. perhaps these chaps from Indian mutiny may work  http://www.awminiatures.co.uk/store/category.php?id=171

They look like they would work, good shout. It is a shame about foundrys maximilian range as my dad is collecting Gringo40s at the moment but the range is unfinished. Heads came today, they look like they will match perry figs okay. A few have facial hair which need to be removed

They turned up at work so I will try the heads when I get home, will post a pick up later. looking at them though they seem a very good fit,  about the same size as Perrys, the ones I had from Redoubt worked but they were a little larger

As Devizes is coming up I am starting to think about terrain, what would anyone recommend for the terrain, as a reminder the board will have the outside of a town at one short end of the table with wooden fence defenses in front for the Bakufu troops, I was thinking maybe a small village at the other end with a road running up through the middle of the table, any suggestions would be great

Plenty of paddy fields. A copse of trees with a small shrine in it by the road and possibly telegraph poles along the road :)

cheers

Cheers james, that gives me something to work on, I better get some balsa wood for the telegraph poles and add some paddy fields to the orders I will be placing with you over the next couple of months

I would suggest you use something a bit more substanial than balsa for the poles. Get some dowel craft sticks a couple of mm in diameter, they'll last longer  :)

cheers

James
