15mm Bavarians finished

Merry Christmas Guys

Pics of my finished 15mm Bavarian commission, I'm very happy to have done these, I had planned on making these for myself, but would never have had the time to get around to it, so was chuffed when my friend wanted just this army, firstly the sun is very hot and bright here in eastern Australia today, so the pictures aren't the best, the figures look much better in the hand, the figures are AB, theres a fare few conversions, the Grenadier battalion are all head swaps, the skirmishers are mostly French converted to Bavarians for variety, the command is mostly converted from Austrians and the Limber is converted Austrian, flags are from fighting 15s, I'm pretty happy with how these turned out, I will get the customer to take pictures of them ones they are based, all comments welcome.

15mm Bavarian army

Hi guys

Have started a commission to make a 15mm Bavarian army, it is a collector piece rather than gaming army, so will contain units that historically wouldn't have been fielded together, e.g. Dragoons and Chevaux Legers, to get them as accurate and as diverse as possible I am doing a fair amount of converting, and thought I would share some pics of the WIP conversions, some of these are
1) making a Grenadier battalion with head swaps (not pictured)
2) converting late war French skirmishers to Bavarians (for diversity)
3) adding sashes to the Chevaux Legers to make them into Dragoons
4) Making a command stand from various figures
I pinched some ideas off Paul Alba's incredible Bavarians, hope they turn out half as good as his.
