Space 1799 update

Progress so far on the Mars adventure.
I have finished the dragoon conversion and painted up the dragoons, have gone for the traditional dragoon green uniforms, the Flintloque miniatures have a lot of equipment which looks great when painted. Hopefully will get to work on the coldones.
All so i managed to paint the privateers. Again lots of detail on the miniatures. Great to paint. See pictures for details
The dragoons painted just got to work on the mounts and the bases

The privateers just the bases to work on then there  ready for the expedition.

With the words of Napoleon still ringing in their ears of adventures to come and glory to the Republic, the members of the  expedition stepped through the portal and vanished. On the other side they found themselves upon a vast plain, with mountains on three sides far away in the distance. There was no sign of the portal they had just past through.
I believe we shall advance, announced the colonel North would be best one of the privateers gestured. Then north it is and with that the expedition moved out.
Till next time

space 1799

Having found a group of old Flintloque figures in the bits box I wanted to do something with them, a moment of inspection came when a friend mentioned a set of rules about napoleonic battles on Mars. Know there's an idea, a sort of Napoleon meets stargate. So the start of something a little different. What I had, I could put together a 15 man strong infantry unit plus a 4 man adventures unit made up of privateers. Plus a four man bodyguard unit plus I found 3 lizards big enough for months so I added 3 dragoons to the force. Plus a command figure and there you had it my Mar's expedition force 1799. It's time to go bug hunting.
The starting point
One of the dragoon conversation in it's early stage  and the command figure completed
Close up of one of the dragoons conversation

Well that is so far, will start to complete the dragoons first hopefully some updates on the project soon
Till next time

Having found some old Lord of the rings miniatures see last post I have found some old Flintloque miniatures the 105th Riles anyone who has read Sharpe will notice a likeness to some characters.
Fantasy Napoleonic's know there's a thought.
