Phew.......... bit of a slog but I have finally finished the Cumberland Yeomanry Cavalry. Pretty happy with the result. The Black Tree Boers are definitely a good base, head swops worked ok. Looking at them now I might have made more conversions but I always get too impatient. They are fairly generic so they can play in VBCW for a range of factions West Cumberland Mounted Farmers, the Melmerby Hunt or the Alston Mounted Brigade. They can also play as the Wealden Mounted Homeguard in Sealion.
A couple of people have asked about the conversions, unfortunate the heads I stopped were cut off older figures whose province I don't know, apart form the artillery man. The good news is most were just cut down, filed and rebuilt with green stuff. The head swops are ringed yellow below. Since posting this first I have since found that the French heads are actually renegade ww1 figures.
