I decided to make my second section as Cossacks. Many regular cavalry units seem to have used Cossack regalia as well as the Cossacks' ordinary cavalry gear, so I thought a little mixing would not cause any harm. Funnier to convert and paint Cossacks as well! As I plan to field a mounted platoon I needed a mounted HQ to join them. The HQ will consist of the lieutenant, his horse-holder and the platoons horse-serzhant, the soldier in charge of the horses! First out are the Cossacks, I made one with a ridden down German (Black Tree Design) and one with LMG as every cavalry squad has one:
My mounted HQ was quite straight forward, took the nicest horse to the lieutenant!
And some group photos:
Now I just need to paint them, and I hope that will be my next update!
