Mid War Spanish Additions (cont. 7) – Olivenza Cazadores
I used the depiction of the 1812-13 uniform in Osprey’s Spanish Army of the Napoleonic Wars (3) 1812-1815 (plate B) and the figures depicted on the Perry Miniatures site to do this unit .
The basic Front Rank figures I have used to represent this unit started life as early Portuguese cavalry in Tarleton style helmets / caskets.
They required quite a lot of cutting and filing and there is a significant fudge.
The cavalry flag is by Adolfo Ramos.
Note: You can buy Olivenza Cazadores from Perry Miniatures and very nice they look. But, this is a strictly Front Rank collection.
The first conversion job was to remove the brass scale shoulder wings. This was done with a scalpel followed by some careful filing. The separate positional sword arms were then glued and pinned: The separate arm made filing easier than it might have been with the alternative ‚Trooper at rest‘ figure.
This shot clearly shows the other piece of ‚metal removal‘.
